Following the failure of the immigration bill, Senator Byrd is giving a whopper of a speech about age and his respect for the Senate. Could this speech end with a retirement announcement? Wishful thinking I guess.
UPDATE: No chance. He just pledged to do his work as a senator until his old body drops.
UPDATE: His speech just ended. It didn't appear he was done. Just started coughing, turned away from the microphone, silence for fifteen seconds and then the Senate continued on with business.
