One of the Republican goals in November is to turn Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid out out of their seats, depriving the Democrats of established top leadership.

I don't know who they have running against Nancy. I don't think it's anyone that can beat her. A Tea Party candidate named Sharon Angle is running against Reid for the Senate seat in Nevada. She doesn't seem to me like she has legs. In fact, she seems kind of like a joke candidate. Does anybody out there know anything about her that might indicate she can beat Harry?

The Republicans are sure that they are going to make significant Congressional gains in the upcoming mid term elections. I think they will make some gains. The balance is pretty lopsided right now. I wonder how extensive those gains are doing to be though? There are some seats they could lose as well as some they can win. I don't think they have a very good shot at taking control of either Congressional body. If they can't do that, there's not much else they can do either.

I think the Repubs will gain around 30 seats in the House and maybe 4 or 5 in the Senate.

Hillary will resign sometime next year and then challenge Obama for the Democrat nomination for president for 2012.

I think they will do even better than that in the Senate but not sure they will do that well in the House.
