Something Happening Here...

Charlie Cook of the highly respected Cook Political Report now says that Democrats could win control of the House just by taking the 15 GOP-held seats he rates as "toss ups." There are no Democratic-held seats currently in that category. Another 21 Republican seats are rated as only "leaning Republican." The Senate seems more problematic, with Democrats likely able to pick up 4-5 seats, but not the 6 they need to take control.
