US mid term elections 2010

Anyone keeping an eye on these?

It looks like the Democrats will lose the houce while the Senate will be neck and neck.

Either loss is potentially bad news for Obama. Or it could be good news if the Republicans stop stalling in legislation as they have been in the past two years.

There is also a question of how often elections are in America - someone mentioned how AMerica was suffering from "too much democracy" where campaigning for the Mid Terms sort of started before Obama had even got into office, and as soon as these are over, campaigning will start for the presidential elections in 2 years time.

That leaves very little time to get on with legislation without posturing for position.
