    how does the senate look as far as defending Dem. vs. Rep. seats?

    I don't feel that I've heard anything about this, but I've been hyperventilating about more immediate issues and perhaps missed the discussion. :)

      in about a half-dozen states that went Romney this year.  But that's not insurmountable - by way of example, McCaskill and Tester both won in red states.  Mid-term turnout is often an issue, but if we get some crazy nuts on the other side (and of course we will), maybe we'll get another "rape isn't so bad" election or some similar hilarity.
