More of the Obama effect

Add Sen. Jeff Bingaman to the growing list of Democratic senators retiring after next year rather than run for re-election.

The four-term senator from New Mexico will announce later Friday that he will retire after his current term ends next year, a Democratic source confirms to CNN.

Bingaman joins Sen. Jim Webb of Virginia, Sen. Kent Conrad of North Dakota, and Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut as members of the Democrat's 53 seat majority to announce they are not running for re-election. Lieberman, a former Democrat and current independent, is part of the majority coalition since he caucuses with the Democrats.

Obama is doing a great job getting Obama reelected, and destroying the Democratic party in the process.
