The Senate in 2008 looks a bit thin, but there are maybe 3-4 or so pickup possibilities. We could win back the Senate, barely in a good election..
What make these rich pickings in the House IMHO is the ability to tie the Democrat 'blue dogs' to their very liberal Democrat leadership. We should definitely look for bringing back 10 or more of these seats, at a minimum.
We didnt have leverage to do that when the GOP was the majority, but the ballgame changes when the Dems are the majority.
Perhaps one way to calibrate this is to look at ADA, NARAL, ACU, AFLCIO, and NTU ratings... and tie every Congresscritter as a "Liberal Democrat" who did "XZ" and help Nancy Pelosi do ABC.... the issues will pop up like mushrooms after a storm as the liberal warhorses, Conyers, Waxman, Dingell, etc. do their predictable liberal, confiscatory, thing.
If we get our A game up and recruit even better than we did in 2002 and 2004, then we could do well in the Senate.
We could be competitive in seats in Ark, LA, South Dakota, Montana, and even Michigan and West Virginia.
Think about it, at this point in 2004 if you would have told me that the Dems would have won in PA, Montana, Virginia, Ohio, etc...
I would have laughed!
The dems realize that they had to act like no seat was out of bounds, so do we!
