    Take these 4 seats AWAY from the Republicans and I'd say the NET change in the Senate as far as R vs. D is about 2. Could we live with 57-43, with Burr, Voinovich, Lemieux and Grassley gone? (3 of these are mostly place holders, but ridding the country of Grassley would be a certain gain.)

    And yes, likely these 4 would mostly fit the bill as "better Democrats" as well, although Marshall might be more tempered of the 4 just to get elected. (OTOH, if Marshall wins, North Carolina would have swung from Libby Dole/Richard Burr in 2006 to Kay Hagen/Elaine Marshall in 2010. The Tarheel State could breathe easily (not the Pine State as the diarist names it. Pine Tree state is Maine.)

    Shalom.
