Was Matsui Wellstoned?

Democratic Rep. Bob Matsui has died. From the CNN report (my emphasis):

"In a statement announcing Matsui's death, his office disclosed that the congressman was diagnosed several months ago with Myelodysplastic Syndrome, a rare stem cell disorder that reduces the body's ability to produce red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets."


"As senior Democrat on the subcommittee on Social Security, Matsui gave every impression during the final few weeks of his life of being eager to lead the opposition to President Bush's plans to establish personal retirement accounts as part of a general overhaul of the program."
