1. As with many here..I am glad the predictions are going our way
Edited on Mon Oct-09-06 04:16 PM by MadMaddie
but this is not the time to be overly confident.....New York Yankees come to mind...anyhoo....

We need to keep kicking the shit of the Repugs until November 7th...No slack, No mercy......and then when we win the Dems implement Nancy's 100 hour plan...

But this is good news..

2. I would be a fool to count on that. Peoples minds move slow
I was around during Vietnam. Just think who sent the men in first and when they came out.

6. Sanders and Lieberman
I think that Lieberman will dissolve the Connecticut for Lieberman Party and put that "D" back next to his name, once Reid offers him some cushy concessions.

4. This is wrong
If nothing major happens between now and election day, republicans will lose much more than just 20 house seats. There will be many unhappy incumbents on Nov 8th. Even with the gerrymandering... There will be loses in districts noone ever thought about. Think of 94, only smaller. Democrats can win up to 45-50 seats. The 20 seats gain is a conservative estimate.

7. I'd say 30 seats at best
Gerrymandering and the Right-Wing Noise Machine give the Republicans breathing room that we didn't have in 1994.

5. I'm convinced that once Holy Joe is returned to the Senate....
he'll be offered Sec of Defense, and he'll accept. CT Gov. Jodi Rell-(R), will then be able to handpick his repub replacement and we'll be stuck with said replacement for 6 yrs, thereby making Dead Eye Dick the tie breaker in the senate. Someone please tell me I'm wrong? God, I absolutely despise Joe Lieberman.

I hope the Dem voters of CT are smarter than that. Please vote for NED.

8. I hate these threads
I mean, I love them, but I just don't want to get my hopes up too much like I did in 04.

9. Let's not do the victory dance until the game is over.
It brings to mind the football player who holds out the ball as he believes he is about to waltz into the end zone. He looks and feels real stupid when the ball gets knocked out of his hand before he reaches the goal line. It ain't over til it's over.
