Looking to November

I predict that Republicans will maintain control of the House and Senate after the midterm elections are completed in November. I don't see a strengthening of control by any means, but I don't think the Democrats have a compelling story to tell, beyond pointing out the flaws of the Republicans. Unfortunately, the Republicans seem determined to make the Dems job easier than normal. The Wall Street Journal diagrams the GOP Record in today's edition (found here at Opinion Journal).

The truth, and it has been stated by man, is that the Republicans tenuous situation is of their own making. The WSJ has done an excellent job of highlighting the incumbency politics that mar the good work that Republicans should be doing.

All for Term Limits? One vote right here. Think of the vitality that could emerge from a political class that is both temporary and not hampered with thoughts of reelection. It's a nice thought.
