i've got the house going to the dems, and senate remaining in GOP hands. dems will pick up only 2 senate seats, in PA and MO. races in OH, MT and RI will be laden with scandal, but will ultimately go to the GOP. dems will barely get the house majority, i'm guessing they'll pick up 18 seats. again, allegations of dirty tricks and vote suppression will be widespread. i reckon we'll see from the right what we saw in 2000, which was shrill ridicule for even considering court challenges. i do, of course, hope i'm being madly pessimistic. but tonight i'm feeling like a realist.
