about competitive Senate aces across the country leaves me some hope, though it’s a tainted hope. There are competitive races shaping up all across the country, but I’m still worried that Democrats won’t take control of anything this November.

I wonder how many hours this one will last. Probably just long enough for the loonies at Faux and on the right side of the blogosphere to get their headlines out.
