    We need to win as many seats this year as possible. If we elect Obama, he'll be in his mid term and the Republicans will go all-out. I wish wish Chandler, Sebelius and Bredesen chose this year to run.

      Here's the wikipedia article on the 2010 Senate races.

      There are lots of pickup opportunities there, visible to the naked eye even for a non-expert like me.

        ...but the current map does seem to favor us.  Of course, that's two years into an Obama presidency (presumably) so who knows what the ground will be like then?

        I can see two, MAYBE three states where the GOP could conceivably pick us off assuming the world isn't in the shitter, four if you count whoever is in Obama's seat, and contingent on Republicans running a real moderate, as Illinois is so blue now it has to hurt what remains of the Illinois Republican Party (at least for federal purposes).  

        In the meantime, we have more than a few opportunities.
