No matter how Democrats spin it, losing the House will be bad news. Maybe worse than they are willing to admit.
Some say the Democrats were due to lose seats since they won so many in 2006 and 2008. So those seats were really Republican seats and Democrats just held them for a short term.
Instead of being a major wave, the 2010 election is a restoration - a restoration of Republican rule. The way things should be.
Nancy Pelosi's time as speaker was a fluke, brought on by Republican mistakes. It's time things got back to normal.
After the election, it's time to focus on redistricting. The move of seats from Democratic areas to faster growing places in the south and west. Republican areas.
No wonder Nancy Pelosi and many Democratic leaders might retire if they lose the majority. Lose this majority, and they will not see another in their lifetimes.
