OK-Sen: Is Tom Coburn Retiring?

Y'know how there have been, like, a million stories asking whether or not Kentucky Senator Jim Bunning will retire, in part because of his weak fundraising, fundraising not indicative of a Senator gearing up for re-election? Well, consider this:
|Senator||Raised in Q4||Cash on Hand at End of 2008|
Oklahoma's Tom Coburn raised less in Q4 and has less cash on hand than old man Bunning, who everyone expects will retire.
Maybe Coburn isn't so keen on a re-election bid, as his previous comments have suggested. He certainly isn't fundraising like his heart is in it. Will Coburn be the next Senate Republican to announce his retirement?
