    It's nice to see where the Republicans will be vulnerable next time, but do remember that every state will have to draw new lines to reflect the current population.  Every year ending with a two is a breeding ground for upsets because incumbents pick up areas where they have never campaigned.  

    It is important to me to see how many of the undecided races tip to the Dems.  Each one they win is one less where they have to beat a sitting Rep in two years.  Currently, according to CNN, there are nine undecided races.  Democrats lead in five (including McNerney by 441 votes) and trail in four.  If the numbers hold, it will be 243 to 192.  Demcorats will need to win back 26 seats to take a majority in 2013.
