    so I don't think these are necessarily possible, but from an electoral standpoint, how good 2014 ends up being will determine how far 2016 will go.  Just like how 2006 greased the skids for the '08 tsunami, 2014 will set the mood for 2016.  If we get a '98-esque showing, 2016 looks pretty good for Clinton to sweep Congress.  If we get a '94 showing, it might even keep our top tier candidates away from running in 2016, which would only make things harder downballot.
