Rangel's Taking His Bat And His Ball(s) And He's Going Home

Is this like when Cindy Sheehan threatened to tie herself to the White House fence after the 2,000th US military death in Iraq? And then kind of never got around to it?

Rep. Charles Rangel (D), says he'll leave Congress if the Democrats don't take control of the House this year. He's 76, so it's not like he can wait a few more years for the tide to change.

"I'm a poker player and I've had good hands all night long. This is all in," Rangel said in an interview. "I would not put everything on the table if I thought for one minute we would lose."
