Ten Most Endangered House Incumbents

Taegan Goddard's Political Wire has a link to a Roll Call article by Stuart Rothenberg listing the ten most vulnerable incumbents in the House.

-Rep. Bob Ney (R-OH)
-Rep. Tom DeLay (R-TX)
-Rep. John Hostettler (R-IN)
-Rep. Jim Gerlach (R-PA)
-Rep. Rob Simmons (R-CT)
-Rep. Heather Wilson (R-NM)
-Rep. Christopher Shays (R-CT)
-Rep. Mike Sodrel (R-IN)
-Rep. Clay Shaw (R-FL)
-Rep. Melissa Bean (D-IL)

Rothenberg does provide himself caveat, stating, "Many of the incumbents on this list have proven their political mettle before, and in normal circumstances, they wouldn't be in all that much trouble. Others find themselves in the sort of hot water that should automatically sink them, but because of unique circumstances, they might somehow survive."

That said, it's encouraging that there's only one Democrat on the list. Bodes well for the nation. Oh, and absolutely delicious that Tom Delay is on the list...
