That niggling feeling

I just realized why I'm so unhappy with the 2008 presidential race. Six out of the eight candidates from the Democratic Party are SENATORS or FORMER SENATORS, while only two of the nine candidates from the Republican Party are Senators. Since when has a Senator been elected President? Not since Nixon. And there's only been fifteen Senators elected to President, out of forty-three? I don't like the odds.
