Berry Latest To Announce Retirement (Reid Wilson and Tim Sahd, 1/24/10, Hotline)

Rep. Marion Berry (D-AR) will become the latest Dem to forgo running for another term when he announces his retirement tomorrow, Dem sources confirm to Hotline OnCall.

The 7-term Dem has never faced a difficult bid for an additional 2 years, winning more than 60% of the vote in every re-election bid. But he represents a district that could give Dems headaches; the northeast AR seat, based around Jonesboro, gave Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) 59% of the vote in '08.


And some REALLY great news:

Obama Moves to Centralize Control Over Party Strategy (JEFF ZELENY and PETER BAKER, 1/25/10, NY Times)

President Obama is reconstituting the team that helped him win the White House to counter Republican challenges in the midterm elections and recalibrate after political setbacks that have narrowed his legislative ambitions.

Mr. Obama has asked his former campaign manager, David Plouffe, to oversee House, Senate and governor’s races to stave off a hemorrhage of seats in the fall. The president ordered a review of the Democratic political operation — from the White House to party committees — after last week’s Republican victory in the Massachusetts Senate race, aides said.

In addition to Mr. Plouffe, who will primarily work from the Democratic National Committee in consultation with the White House, several top operatives from the Obama campaign will be dispatched across the country to advise major races as part of the president’s attempt to take greater control over the midterm elections, aides said.


The leftist inclination to centralize everything is going to wind up making the Democrat smash-up even worse. Since it's the national issues plaguing Dems, the best thing Obama can do for the Republicans is to make SURE that EVERY SINGLE RACE is nationalized. When the Dem candidate tries to distance himself, every Republican will be able to point to the White House's obsessive micromanagement.
