    WRM, I agree that the continual “horse race” coverage of our elections takes focus off key issues and diverts attention from much more impacting public policy. Equally since we have probably close to a million elective offices throughout America (and considering the fact that there is at least one aspirant arrayed against every incumbent), it is evident that the mere filling of offices amounts to quite an “industry” in an economic sense – gives employment to many people.

    This is so 2008, it totally ignores the special elections and the historic midterm 2010 election. Many of the Blue states of 2008 are now Red states, and the reapportionment has made things even worse for the Democrats, as red states are gaining population. So, comparing the perfect storm high water mark for the Democrats of 2008, with what is shaping up to be the perfect storm for the Republicans of 2012, by only looking at the freakish election of 2008 without any consideration of historical voting outside of that one election, is ridiculous.
