Of the current political situation anyway, from Winds of Change:
as poor a hand as it may be, you can’t beat a pair of twos with nothing.
That sums it up pretty well I think. The dems wouldn’t even have to try that hard at this point. Instead they’ll probably lose a house seat or two and then return to their default position of navel gazing. Perhaps it’s all a big plot by the Clinton faction to set the stage for Hillary in 2008.
