Carol Platt Liebau: Not So Rosy for the Dems?

Not So Rosy for the Dems?

As Hugh Hewitt points out, a Romney candidacy might well put Michigan, New Hampshire, Maine, Wisconsin and Minnesota in play for the Republicans.

This Washington Post piece reports that Mayor Giuliani does better in key congressional Democratic swing districts than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

The upshot? Despite the MSM drumbeat about a Democratic sweep and premature lefty triumphalism, when the rubber meets the road, next year's presidential election is still very much in play. Of course, it's going to be a tough race unless it's already become evident that repeated Democratic push for defeat in Iraq is unnecessary and, indeed, dangerous.

But in light of developments in Iraq, the low approval ratings of the Democratic Congress, and the trends noted above, any lefty would be foolish to consider the presidential race to be in the bag.

I am pleased to again acknowledge agreement with you: the Democrats would be fools to assume that they have a grand sweep in the bag. But they seem to be aware of this: Ms. Clinton and Mr. Obama are running hard and the Democratic Party is beginning a big buildup of support.

But there isn't much point in arguing over who will win an election that's 13 months away. We can wait to see how it comes out -- with either fear or hope.
