    in 2016 since Presidential years increase turnout and Arizona, Georgia and Texas will eventually become purple states.   I also see us eventually winning more California districts(and I think New Jersey could see a few GOPers lose in 2016 if the national GOP acts like it does now).

    Hillary Clinton may also put some places in play that would be more difficult otherwise.

    Of course, it's still early and Michigan Democrats seem to be ready to all-out push in 2014 so maybe some Michigan House seats flip with the higher-than-expected turnout.

    I agree with President Obama, our country's journey is not yet complete. We must continue the work that our forebearers at Seneca Falls started, and put the Equal Rights Amendment into our Constitution.

      President Obama can campaign and so can Bill Clinton.  That enough will be good for Democrats to fire up the troops in all the elections that matter.

      Keep in mind because races for the U.S. House and Senate are mostly state or region based, there isn't as much grueling state-to-state campaigning done by candidate running for president.  It's a lot easier to organize campaigns within states than it is nationally.
