House Dems likely to crack 200 members

There are 9 outstanding races and only two of them have Republicans leading. That leaves 7 Dem leading with 193 votes secured. Dems won the White House, won seats in the Senate, and are close to pciking up enough seats to gain 200 House legislators.

3. Still far from acceptable.

I hope that Obama can move the supreme court in a new direction and use the justice department to undo some of the reactionary gerrymandering. We could gain thirty seats right there. The goal should be to use all available tools to smash them to smithereens.

5. But R's "held" the House, so Lipless Mitch sees no need to change.

Hope he gets shunted aside when the new Congress convenes in January. Maybe somewhere in the depths of the GOP Congress they can scrounge up one realist.
