Winning the Senate?

Interesting article here on the American Senate battle. Author Larry Sabato from the University of Virginia notes:
When the American people decide to make a change, they do it. They don't care that the forecasters and the prognosticators say it isn't likely. They find a way to make the change happen, even if--on paper--there aren't enough competitive districts or states to produce a party turnover.
In the House this is what I have said already. Problem is that the Democrats are starting from behind after their loses in 2002 and 2004; it is a similar challenge that Victorian Labor had to overcome to win a Legislative Council majority in 2002. Inclined to agree with Sabato very difficult to win 6 extra seats out of the competetive Senate races.

If the Democrats can't win the house this year then they will never win it back.

My guess is the Republicans are held in such low esteem the Senate will go as well.

I don't see the Democrats doing all that much to clean things up though.
Where is the Newt Gingrich of the Democrats?
