Kos has a list of senate retirements, and although Kos is a democratic activist, has this to say about Daytons' retirement:
Mark Dayton (D-MN). While retirements are always bad for the incumbent party, this is one of those few times when it's actually good. Dayton was damaged goods, and his exit from the race gives state Democrats a clean slate to work with in a state that is still Blue.
"Damaged goods" is a nice way of putting it - certifiable is more accurate. I wonder how Minnesota can be considered a "blue" state when it last elected a republican, Norm Coleman, to the senate, has a republican governor, and barely voted for Kerry against Bush (Minnesota is very anti-war, so I am sure Kerry got at least 5 points just from that if not more).

I think there is at least a 50-50 shot that a republican gets Dayton's seat. It will be interesting to see who gets nominated.
