  •  Any seats we can gain in the House are important (3+ / 0-)

    I've seen people say that the presidency doesnt matter as much without having control of the House and Senate, and I see their point. Obviously, Dems getting back control of the House and holding on to the Senate would be ideal.

    I think they have a decent chance of holding the Senate. Getting back control of the House is harder.

    But keep in mind, any seats they gain are good news. Boehner already has problems getting 218 Republicans to sign on to a lot of important legislation, and that task will be harder for every seat Dems can gain.  It means less leverage to Boehner and more to Obama when it comes to getting legislation passed.
