In 2005 I've been selling most bond funds and holding the money in a money market mutual fund. The money market is currently yielding 2.2% and the rate will climb as the Fed raises short term rates. I hate settling for such a low rate but the yields on most bond funds don't compensate for the risk to principal from rising interest rates. Once the Fed is done and things settle down I'll move back to intermediate bond funds.
