        I guess they're not going to win every race. The South appears to be looking more or less OK, and I suppose even Third Way Dixiecrats won't vote to impeach a Democratic president, even if he is black.

          up with 52-55 seats. That's very far from 67.

          •  GOP will have 51 votes in 2015, no more (0+ / 0-)

            WV, MT, ND are already in the bag.  NC and LA are looking good for them.  Mitch will survive in KY, and GA will stay red.  That means they need to win one of AR, AK, MI, CO.  They won't win them all, unless Obama is caught on tape raping children.

            It's either going to be a 50-50 Senate with Biden breaking ties or Angus King defecting to the GOP and giving them the 51st vote, or it will be GOP 51-47-2.

            So, there won't be any impeachment removal or veto overrides, except maybe on Keystone XL.
