    A better showing by Obama should make things easier for Bill Nelson to hold his Senate seat.

    A strong campaign should also help Democrats win more House seats, a nice step toward restoring Speaker Pelosi to her rightful place.

    Besides, a few of those House seats are juicy indeed: Patrick Murphy over crazy Allen West,  Joe Garcia over the conspicuously corrupt David Riviera, Keith Fitzgerald over standard-issue Vern Buchanon, Lois Frankel over Adam Hosner, Alan Grayson over tea-bagger Todd Long, Val Demings over Daniel Webster. [Incumbents in italic.]

    Well, a couple of those races still Lean Repub. So unless somebody drops dead or gets caught in bed with a live boy or a dead girl, that's all we can pick up in Florida. Sadly a fistful of FL races in districts where Obama made a good showing in 2008 either have no Democrat at all, or our candidate can be described as Some Broke Dude.
