Chicago Tribune link I hate to be the eternal pessimist, and I'd love to be proven wrong, but I don't feel quite so cocky as this article implies that I should. Yeah, the Dems hold an 11% "electability" lead, but is that just what the voters are telling the polls? When push comes to shove, will they vote for the same old incumbents again? And second, I fear the Republicans will pull some kind of bull**** issue out of their hat again, as they did with gay marriage amendments in 2004. I know they've failed to do that with immigration and flag burning, but Karl Rove still has time between now and November to come up with something else.
