    According to Clinton pollster John Zogby, Former Republican Rep. Jim Talent leads Jean "Cry for me Missouri" Carnahan by 7 points in the Missouri Senate Race. Is it time for Jean to dig up old Mel and throw him from a train this time to garner some last minute sympathy?
    Closer to home, Republican John Thune leads Tim "Tiny's Shadow" Johnson by 5 points in the South Dakota Senate Race. South Dakota Democrats are frantically signing up dead Indians, five year old Indians and the same Indians several times over to close the gap.
    The Senate seems up for grabs in 2002. Unlike in the middle of Clinton's first term when his policies were totally rejected by the American people with the biggest rejection of the President's party in Congressional elections in modern history, it appears the American People now have a President whose policies are trusted and who is respected for doing his homework. In the long run however, regardless of who wins and loses, we all lose with the retirement of the great Jesse Helms, the greatest US Senator since Jim Eastland of Mississippi.

    Funny, I didn't see other races brought up

    How about the race in Colorado where Allard is in trouble? How about the race in New Hampshire where the incumbent didn't even make it through the elephant man primary and Sununu is the standard bearer? Haven't seen the numbers in Texas lately but last I saw it was within the margin of error. So I realize your limited math skills, thus I will help you. If you take LESS seats in turnover seats than you LOSE, you still come out BEHIND OVERALL. More LEFT OUT information on your part -- I noticed you mentioned that the DEMs lost seats in the first off year election of his two terms. What happened during the 2nd off year election cycle, Sparky? Oh, that's right, the party occupying the White House GAINED seats for only the 2nd time in the 20th century.

    Oh, and if Sapling is so respected, why has consumer confidence DROPPED OFF A CLIFF, and when people are asked about issues, 56% say the economy is the most important and 5% say military action against Iraq. Per usual, you show yourself the clueless poster that has made you a legend in your own time.

    Don't forget! Now if an incumbent is behind in the polls then he can simply withdraw and the party can replace him with a ringer.

    Forget the will of the people, who in the primary picked their candidate. You can circumvent them and put in a party man who didn't even have to participate in a primary.

    Why would I mention New Hampshire?

    I didn't mention Tennessee, South and North Carolina or Texas for that matter where the candidate of the retiring incumbent is leading the Democrat in those races also. Sununu is leading Shaheen by as many as 10 points in NH. I do give credit to Sununu for actually running in the primary against a weak Republican incumbent, Bob Smith, and actually beating him at the polls...unlike in say New Jersey?
    I also didn't mention Georgia, Iowa and Minnesota Senate races.
    I didn't give proper credit I gather to the Dems picking up 5 seats in the House (and 0 in the Senate) in 1998 as that was the 2nd mid-term election in the Clinton Presidency. Staying on point, I will address that in 2006! LOL Since we are only in the mid-term of Bush's first term, it would only make since to compare that to Clinton's first term, when I believe he lost almost a dozen Senate seats and a record number of House seats. But, of course, that was a result of poor policies and Clinton not doing his homework. It is unfortunate for Bush that should the Dems remain control over the Senate, the opposing party has no plans or even a budget! to get the economy back on track. Whereas, in 1994, the Republicans actually had an economic package that lead to a great economic recovery that Clinton could watch from the sidelines.

    >>I didn't mention Tennessee, South and North Carolina or Texas for that matter where the candidate of the retiring incumbent is leading the Democrat in those races also.

    All 4 are already Republican seats which means winning those races wouldn't gain a turnover seat anyway. As I stated, the Texas race was WITHIN the margin of error the last poll I saw, so NO ONE is leading that race.

    >>Sununu is leading Shaheen by as many as 10 points in NH

    Must be a Sununu poll, because I was just up in that state, and I heard no such poll.

    >>I also didn't mention Georgia, Iowa and Minnesota Senate races.

    I wouldn't mention those states if I were you, because the Democrats will win Georgia and Minnesota. I don't know who is running in Iowa.

    >>Staying on point, I will address that in 2006! LOL Since we are only in the mid-term of Bush's first term

    Better address Sapling's midterm election this time, because he won't be around for a second chance.

    The rest of your post is just your standard GOP dog(ma) poop. Clinton's budget policies was the cause for the eventual budget surplus, which has now been squandered by the incompetent Sapling and his fuzzy math. And the Democrats have put forth a great budget proposal which includes foregoing the rest of the tax package since it already has begun to bankrupt the country and dragged down consumer confidence. I will admit it didn't take them long to figure out a good plan, since Sapling had already monopolized the insane ones.

    LOL, Yes the Dems have put together a great budget plan!

    Too good to even vote for or against as a matter of fact. One of those budgets plans best admired from afar, as far from the eyes of the voters as possible!

    Coleman will win the Senate race in Minnesota, despite the efforts of American Artist Alec Baldwin who campaigned this week in Minneapolis with Paul Wellstone. But, I do have good news for the Democrats. Former Democrat Tim Penny will be the next Governor of Minnesota. He left the Dems to run as an Independent as the Democratic Party has moved so far to the left out of the mainstream.
    Georgia will be a key race to see if the Feds are serious about cleaning up campaign corruption. Limiting the votes to registered voters only would give Chambliss a boost in this race. Hopefully authorities will be vigiliant in enforcing campaign laws. Protecting the franchise of registered voters is more important than worrying about "intimidating" those voting illegally (and Democrat). Congrats to the Georgia chapter of the VFW for endorsing Chambliss. Should be a tight race, although you have to give Cleland about 10 points for each missing limb. Otherwise, he couldn't get 20% of the vote in Georgia.

    No, actually the Democrats have advertised their plans pretty well. But I hate to inform you but budget plans only occur every 2 years on the federal level. You know that, right?

    >>Coleman will win the Senate race in Minnesota, despite the efforts of American Artist Alec Baldwin who campaigned this week in Minneapolis with Paul Wellstone.

    Wrong as usual, but thanks for your prediction. You have proven to be quite the contrary indicator in the past. Wellstone will win --
