This is Rep. Charlie Rangel’s last hurrah.

The 83-year-old Democrat is preparing to announce that this will be his last campaign for re-election, and that he will retire from Congress in 2016 as President Obama is leaving the White House, Harlem insiders told me.

“Promising to retire is a stunt,” said one. “He can always change his mind.”

Wouldn't be his first.

He's got any and every-thing a man could need and want.

The only reason to stay in politics is to be a vote ... nothing less evil than that

Be a vote to kill the nation that allowed him to wear a uniform and for a brief period in his life ... be a man.
