My predictions for the elections is that the Democrats will take the House, narrowly (perhaps only by Cheney's tie-breaker) miss the Senate, and I have no idea about the gubernatorial races.
A couple of other observations:
- It is already clear that Bush is the big loser in this election. Those Republicans that do win congressional races will have had to disassociate themselves from the president, and of course this will be an enormous defeat for the Republicans in general.
- What the Democrats should be worrying about is how they deal with the new political situation come January. They can declare war on Bush and probably end up looking bad, or they can choose to be grown-ups about things, creating a profile of themselves as the responsible, patriotic, serious bunch to the rabid Republican dogma.
The next two years will be crucial for the future of American politics. The blogosphere may contribute to the outcome, for better or worse. Time to get serious, guys.
