  • Democrat incumbent Senator Patty Murray of Washington has held her seat for nearly two decades but polls have her nearly even with her Republican opponent Dino Rossi. Within the past month Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Joe Biden and Bill Clinton have all made at least two visits to the state of Washington to help in her campaign. This kind of attention demands questioning just how important this state will be on November 2, 2010. There is speculation that Washington could be the deciding state for the balance of power in the Senate, given the favorable amount of attention top Democrats have devoted toward continuing Murray’s career as a Washington Senator.
  • Republicans need to win 40 seats to clench the House majority. This goal is not only ascertainable but many Democratic officials presume their losses could easily exceed that minimum number. A GOP takeover would demote Nancy Pelosi from being House speaker and would force Obama to negotiate with Republicans on every single legislative item presented.
  • Republicans must maintain 18 of their Senate seats and clench 10 of the 19 Democratic seats in order to gain the Senate majority. Given the outrage Americans feel attributed to President Obama and other liberal politicians, this goal is a reasonable expectation. However, there are a number of states that are so tight no polls, even down to the last day before the election, can hint toward one outcome or the other.

With this election beginning to glow in the horizon of our long-term future, I can’t help but stand in disbelief, unable to comprehend what end democrats are after. What is the end? I see the means to the end, but what is the award at the end? I am no politician and I freely admit that there is very, very much that I do not know or understand in this curious world, but why would any given group of people so adamantly desire to break something that works better than anything else in the world? America works and Obama wants to change it? There is a peculiar grimace on the face of America, and if you look deeply into America’s eyes you will see that this country is frustrated and more aware than ever.

1.954.3 miles to go.
