I am, after all, a political science major--and a democrat!
Democrats will take the House. They need only 15 seats to win, and they are expected to pick up at least 20. Hello, Speaker Pelosi.
The Senate is a bit more precarious, but I think the Dems can pick up a few seats. They need six to control the Senate. Someone should tape John Kerry's mouth shut until he learns how to speak coherently. Argh!
I've been campaigning a lot with democrat Pete Ashdown, who is running for the U.S. Senate against Orrin "I Hate Technology" Hatch. Yes, being a democrat in Utah is suicide and pretty damn depressing, but it's fun to at least pretend we'll win...we do have one democratic Congressman!
But he votes with George Bush 65% of the time.
