I agree. Although this is a fascinating topic, it only appeals to "a minority of a minority of a minority." (Hat tip to another FReeper)
I'll focus on the 2014 mid-terms, AT THE APPROPRIATE TIME, but after following politics since 1952, I'm tired.
It was an interesting read, though.
While I am working very hard to beat Obama next month, one can't ignore the fact that in this 24/7/365 media environment the 2016 election begins the day after election.
I'd wager that at least one major paper, likely the NY times will have a headline along these lines:
ROMNEY WINS SURPRISING, CONVINCING VICTORY; GOP TAKES CONTROL OF SENATE
SPECUALTION BEGINS ON CLINTON RUNNING IN 2016
BTW..we should get very excited about 2014. Take a look at rthe loist of senators up then. 20 Dems..many of whom are very vulnerable, and several will retire. I think the GOP ends up with 53 Senate seats this time, and we could hit 60+ in 2014..
