Accountability 2010?

How the Senate Democrats who voted against the Obama administration on fixing the foreclosure problem fared:

Baucus (D-MT) :: not up for vote in '10
Bennet (D-CO) :: another six years of the Senator from the Mortgage Bankers Association
Byrd (D-WV) :: died
Carper (D-DE) :: not up for vote, pretended aloud just yesterday that GOP was to blame for "obstructionism", at risk of infecting Coons
Dorgan (D-ND) :: not up for vote in '10
Johnson (D-SD) :: not up for vote in '10
Landrieu (D-LA) :: not up for vote in '10
Lincoln (D-AR) :: lost to Republican
Nelson (D-NE) :: not up for vote in '10
Pryor (D-AR) :: not up for vote in '10
Specter (D-PA) :: lost, then Sestak lost, too
Tester (D-MT) :: not up for vote in '10

Separately, can't help but think of all those "freshman representatives" that the Dem leadership protected from having to vote on the Baldwin Amendment, by having it withdrawn. Is there a lesson in there, somewhere?
