Sen. Barbara Boxer Is Retiring - NationalJournal.com

California hasn't had an open Senate seat since 1992

January 8, 2015 Sen. Barbara Boxer, who has served in the Senate for 21 years, announced Thursday she will retire at the end of her term. Her retirement, at the end of her term in 2016, will open a Senate seat in California for the first time since 1992.

In an interview with her grandson Zach Rodham (who is also Hillary Clinton's nephew), Boxer said that while she will be leaving Congress, she will continue her work on Democratic politics. And when it came to 2016, she dropped a very large hint.

"Zach, I am never going to retire. The work is too important. But I will not be running for the Senate in 2016," Boxer said. "I have to make sure the Senate seat stays progressive. That is so critical. And I want to help our Democratic candidate for president make history."

Boxer, who dabbles in poetry, even recited a poem to commemorate her time in the chamber:

The Senate is the place where I've always made my case
For families for the planet and the human race
More than 20 years in the job I love
Thanks to California and the Lord above
So although I won't be working for my Senate space
And I won't be running that next tough race
As long as there are issues and challenges and strife
I will never retire because that's the meaning of my life.

So while Boxer may be quitting the Senate floor, we can look forward to her guest cameos, whether that means cracking jokes with Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation or confiding in Larry David that she steals other people's dry cleaning.
