Reuters political correspondent John Whitesides anticipates big juicy Democrat victories:
Democrats enter the final week of the fight for Congress with a commanding edge over Republicans, who hope a major voter turnout effort and shift in focus away from Iraq can limit their losses.
Recent polls show that growing Democratic momentum, fed by dissatisfaction with President Bush’s leadership and the war in Iraq, threatens Republican power in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate.
The public’s thirst for change in Washington has Republicans pondering how bad things will be in the November 7 election and calculating whether they can stop Democrats from picking up the 15 House and six Senate seats needed to claim majorities.
The military record of a Democratic House candidate was under attack. So, Senator John F. Kerry ventured to the Philadelphia suburbs last week to defend Patrick Murphy—and deliver the kind of speech the senator never quite gave when his own wartime service was called into question in 2004.
“Attacking Patrick Murphy for his service is a little bit like Jessica Simpson attacking Albert Einstein’s IQ,” the Massachusetts Democrat proclaimed Thursday at a chilly outdoor rally at Bucks County Community College.
Kind of artless with the jokes, isn’t he?
