I would love to see them get to 240 just because it would be historic. As it is, there are more Republicans in the House than at any time in my lifetime! I hope to live long enough to see 56+ GOP senators since 55 has been their ceiling since the 1920a I believe. They came close in 1996, 1998, and 2004 but just can’t seem to break that barrier. 2012 is possible, but it would be tough. It could happen in 2014.

They are already at 240. They have 2 or 3 more within their grasp.

in 2012 there are twice as many dems that have to defend than repubs. IIRC there will be 22 dems up and 11 repubs up.

That smells good.

"2012 is possible, but it would be tough. It could happen in 2014."

Much more probable in 2012 given there are 21 dim senators up for re-elction, plus the will have to run in the long shadow of 0Bozo on the 'big ticket'. The dims have 19 up in 2014.
