14. Right, they targeted the downticket seats.

And attempted to lessen Obama's authority by keeping it more "even". They did this in 2006 as well--we were supposed to take 20-30 more seats. This is all pretty apparent to me--there should have been an equivalent landslide for the Democratic challengers to the obvious suspects like Stevens, Coleman, Chambliss, even Bachmann...They couldn't steal the presidential race, it would have been impossible to convince the electorate.
