John Tanner just turned 65 and Bart Gordon is 60, so they aren't that old. Not sure why they are retiring, but Tennessee was one of Obama's worst states last year, and I don't think there is a high number of illegal aliens in either district, so they wouldn't gain many votes from amnesty.

Maybe it would be useful to have a map showing the number of illegals per Congressional district, and see how the FIA districts (few illegal aliens) match up with the districts where Democrat incumbents don't run for re-election.

Tanner is my RatRep. I think he’s running for Gov in 2010. He’s been in the House 28 or 30 years. It’s way past time for him to go. The Republicans haven’t been able to field a decent candidate in the past 20 years - and will probably disappoint again. If they pick up the seat, it’ll be a surprise to me.
