This is not the first time the legendary conservative columnist voiced his opinion that Mitch McConnell is vulnerable. And given his past history of touting a potential primary challenge to McConnell, I don't think Novak was talking about Greg Scumbo.

The decision not to run by Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) now raises to five the possible losses of Senate seats by Republicans. Democrats also are targeting Sen. Gordon Smith (R-Ore.) for a sixth seat. If 2008 turns into a Democratic landslide, Senators Elizabeth Dole (R-N.C.) and even Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) could be in danger.
