Electoral Crystal Ball
In the U.S. Senate elections, Joe Lieberman will squeak out a narrow win (not more than 5%) against Ned Lamont and join the Republicans by Christmas unless the Democrats have a majority of at least three seats in the Senate - which they probably won't.
George Allen and Jim Webb will be so close that it will take a month to recount the votes, which means the Republicans will win the seat because they are better at fighting dirty in the clinches and control the bench in Virgina.
Rick Santorum will get his ass handed to him in Pennsylvania, Casey will beat him like a rented mule.
My best guess is the Democrats will take 15 to 20 new seats in the house, giving them a majority, though it may be a slim margin. They should take five seats in the Senate, counting the independent socialist (!!!) that is poised to take a seat in Vermont. Look for them to win in Montana, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio, and (please, please, please oh Flying Spagetti Monster) Tennessee.
For all you eligible Americans, get out and vote and take friends to the poll with you. Be prepared to have your right to vote challenged, expect long lines and hundreds if not thousands of "accidental" technical screw-up with the voting machines. Rove will do his best to supress the vote, because a good turnout in which all the votes are accurately counted means a sweep for the Democrats.

YES!!! I'd also remind everyone who's got camera phones to take them, and keep a sharp eye out for anything untoward. Which I'm sure won't take long to find.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed!!!

And by "Hopin' you're right", I meant except for the bits about Lieberman and Allen...

I would love to be wrong about Lieberman and Allen....I just think the republicans will win dirty where they can get away with it.

and can we start a pool on how long it is before Lieberman tries to either jump to the Republicans or weasle his way back into the Democrats? I say it happens before Easter.
