    I fear we neglect the House elections at our own peril.  While retaining the Presidency and Senate are of course important, taking back the House has to also be a priority.  I see no reason to expect a Boehner run House to be any more cooperative in a second Obama term and I personally can't bear another two years (at least) of Tea Party lead obstruction and hostage taking (and neither can the country).

    While we could spend a whole lot of time and energy debating what are our chances of taking back the House, I prefer to start working for our House candidates and let the outcome be whatever it will be.  Even if you believe that our chances of taking back the House in this election are small, you have to admit that our chances of making substantial gains are good, and these gains can set the stage for a Dem. takeover in 2014.

    So if your in any of the swing districts, please take some time and/or money to help out the Dem. candidates.
