    We are in a Obama WH / GOP House situation right now. Would you trade that for Romney / Pelosi? Me neither.

    •  No, of course not, but I do agree with (4+ / 0-)

      mole333's comment below that the House/Senate races could be getting more attention.  The House can wreak a lot of havoc.

      Stop it. This is hard.

      •  Article I offices are powerful (0+ / 0-)

        No question. But the crown jewel in American political power is the one-person Article II seat in that office w/the curved walls. So all I am saying is, honestly, it is more important to win the POTUS than it is the House majority.

      Obama is pretty solidly ahead. We can't take that for granted but we CAN build on it. I would put the Senate second, but we are starting to look pretty good there as well. So the House is worth some attention now.

      Furthermore, getting out the vote for Democrats in House districts helps Obama as well. So I agree it is worth at least equal attention looking at the whole picture.
