    In order for this scenario to happen (50 Dems, 50 GOPs), the GOP would have to win the Democratic seats in ND, AR, IN, NV, CO, WI, IL, WV, and PA, along with holding the Republican seats in KY, NH, AK, and MO.

    No wonder Bowers is taking a lot of shit for this.

    •  DE put that possibility to rest, IMHO (3+ / 0-)

      That was one they absolutely needed to pick up for actual control; they lost the Senate as soon as Her Cuckooness was nominated.
      I'm not real optimististic about our picking up MO or AK (barring a Murkowski implosion/withdrawal), and NH seems do-able to me, although the polls keep saying otherwise. The sleeper I predict is NC, where the Republicans have no real enthusiasm for Burr - he seems to float along on a "hypothetical" lead. If AA turnout is above 2006 levels, he's likely gone.
