Joe, can you get me off the hook — for old times sake?

Rumor has it that the Democrats are contemplating throwing Sen. Chris Dodd overboard in order to preserve his Senate seat for party in the 2010 election. Jim Geraghty reports that Dodd had lined up Vice President Biden to attend a fundraiser for him today, but that Biden apparently couldn’t make it (Dodd himself backed out of the event due to the need to remain on the Hill and vote). Indeed, it appears that the event may have been cancelled.
It reminds me of the scene in Godfather, Part I where Tom Hagen says to Tessio, “I can’t go either, Sal.”
