OUTLOOK: Congress no slam dunk for Dems

Now that the real election season is started, and what parties and candidates do and say has significance to the outcome, we can expect to see the GOP rev up the congressional election machine. With the presidential race on a track to victory, they can focus some attention on the congressional races -- House and Senate.

Rather than allow the Dems to realize their heady dreams for substantial gains in the House and a veto-proof majority in the Senate, the GOP is ready to challenge them in every district and state. Funding will improve as prospects improve.

The "change" theme, so persuasively advanced by the donkey party is about to bite their own ass -- in both usages of the word. If you don't think so, just remember that the public's opinion of the Congress is lower ... yep, lower ... than their opinion of the George Bush presidency.

Just as John McCain has burst the Democrat bubble of optimism at the White House level, the GOP has ever opportunity to burst it at the congressional level.
