'We're in a very strong position right now,' said Phil Singer, spokesman for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. 'We're poised to make gains.'

Winning a majority of the House or Senate would be unlikely based on the current numbers, say most political observers. Still, Democrats are riding a growing wave of disenchantment with Republicans in Washington.

Nonpartisans say they also are seeing the donkey braying in the crystal ball.

'Right now, more than 10 months before the mid-term election, Democrats have a good chance of gaining seats in both houses of Congress,' said Larry Sabato."

Ooook. Right... I do believe it takes more then the suffering of the other side to come ahead and win, perhaps it takes a plan. A plan for anything aside from the "Impeach Bush" crowd would be new, and thats what is required for victory.
