    The odds are the Republicans will take the Senate in 2014, and it's all but foregone that they will retain the House. Only a major Democratic off-year turnout can reverse this outcome.

    I see no reason for optimism. Obama has never shown any leadership on issues which would generate much enthusiasm among the base, and he has six years of glacially slow growth in the economy working against Democratic candidates up and down the line.

    I'd love to believe everyone will remember the shutdown in November, but those who do will be the ones who welcomed it in the first place.

    Ben Gozzi? Wasn't he that guy Hillary hired to kill Vince Foster?
