    Mitt Romney is most interested in privatizing Social Security and Medicare so his 1% Wall Street buddies can get their hands on the Social Security and Medicare Trust Funds.

      was retiring at the end of his term...? Also Ensign, though I expect he'll be replaced by another R.

        Lieberman retires and they actually get a real Democrat to fill that seat. And MA could very well go back to the Democratic seat it should have been and should always be. I truly think Casey should be Ok in PA, people generally like him.  But I can see where MO could change hands and Claire might lose there and a few others that could be a problem. But I see Democrats picking up maybe 2-3 but they cannot afford to lose any and I think they will lose a few.
