Good Political News
A new issue of Blueprint magazine came out today, and it's chock full of good political news. Mark Gersh (the congressional number-cruncher supreme) and I did a forecast of how U.S. House races are beginning to shape up, and concluded a Democratic takeover is no longer a big reach. As a sidebar to Gov. Tom Vilsack's cover story on the successes of Democratic red-state governors, I did a brief and even more optimistic evaluation of this fall's gubernatorial contests. And you might also want to check out Gov. Tim Kaine's first-hand report on how he won Virginia in 2005.
