    helps in '10, but will really be a big wind in the Obama sail in '12.

    I agree that the gloom and doom is unwarranted. Of course Obama's approval ratings will approach his share of the '08 vote, that's what happens. The Republicans are less popular than ever, though.

    Simple numbers suggest that Dems will lose some seats in the House but the Senate calendar still favors the Dems as more Reps are defending or vacant.

    If unemployment numbers can come down even a little along with a successful HC bill and the dynamic favors the Dems. It's way too early for G&D, and it isn't warranted in my opinion.
