    And you do realize that most people counting to 60 include Lieberman in the count, meaning that we'd really need 61 (including Sanders). Plus, there are defections with nearly every vote, so even 60 doesn't mean as much as people think. Every extra seat helps, of course, but a truly safe number is more like 63-65, and we're not getting there this year. But 57-59 gives us enough seats to allow a few defections and pick up a few votes from the other side. It's a nice round number, but it's not essential.

    To the GOP, change means doing a 360.

    •  Well, I'm anticipating '10 (0+ / 0-)

      We might lose some seats that year.  Traditional midterm election, you know.  Don't know if we can make it more like 1998 or 2002 in which the WH party gained seats.
