It’s not exactly man bites dog, but Roll Call issued a list of the 10 most vulnerable incumbents in Congress and nine of them are Democrats. The Hill, 10 most vulnerable incumbents, Cao, Market, Edwards, Halvorson, DriehausIronically, though, the list is headed by a Republican, Joseph Cao of Louisiana.

Here’s the list:

1. Joseph Cao, R-La. In Cao’s majority-black district, President Obama won in 2008 by 52 percentage points.

2. Betsy Markey, D-Colo. Her own poll shows her with just 38 percent support.

3. Chet Edwards, D-Texas. He should suffer from voter antipathy toward Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

4. Debbie Halvorson, D-Ill. He’ll lose the benefit of Obama at the top of the ticket.

5. Steve Driehaus, D-Ohio. Weak turnout could send him packing.

6. Suzanne Kosmas, D-Fla. This is a traditionally Republican seat.

7. Frank Kratovil, D-Md. In another traditionally Republican district, he won by less than 3,000 votes in 2008.

8. Mary Jo Kilroy, D-Ohio. She too won by less than 3,000 votes last time in a Republican-leaning district.

9. Ann Kirkpatrick, D-Ariz. Republicans have a stronger, better-financed candidate this time -- Paul Gosar.

10. Tom Perriello, D-Va. His liberal stances will hurt him.
