Farewell, ma’am

The upsides to the Republicans taking control of the Senate just keep on coming:

California Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer, a tenacious liberal whose election to the Senate in 1992 heralded a new era for women at the upper reaches of political power, announced Thursday she will not seek re-election to a new term next year.

Boxer’s retirement sets off a free-for-all among a new generation of California Democrats, who have been ascendant in the state for years with few offices to aspire to while Boxer and Sen. Dianne Feinstein have held a lock on the state’s U.S. Senate seats.

A staunch supporter of abortion rights, gun control and environmental protections, Boxer has said she is most proud of the vote that she cast against the war in Iraq.

The 74-year-old Boxer made the announcement in an unusual video in which she answered questions posed by her grandson, Zach Rodham. “I am never going to retire. The work is too important. But I will not be running for the Senate in 2016,” Boxer said.

November’s “wave” had some pleasant collateral damage.

Here’s the video featuring Boxer’s grandson, whose father is Hillary Clinton’s brother (inside the DC revolving door is a smaller revolving door leading to a room filled with the sounds of Barry White and scent of essential oils). He might have a job at MSNBC by the end of the week for this interview:

“Senator Boxer”? At least he didn’t refer to his grandmother as “Ma’am” (birthday check = saved):

Now Boxer will have the time to serve as Abortion Czar if Hillary is elected president.
