    I think they will win the White House again before they regain either house of Congress. They could possibly regain the Senate in 12 years, but I predict they win the White House in 8, if Obama falters. Otherwise, who knows?

    What is your opinion?

    2010 or 2012. Obama and the Democrats are already off to a horrible start. It won't take long for them to lose power.

    So Obama, in his week in office, hasn't fixed the mess that Bush left? That is good reason for the Dems to lose Congress? No, there will be plenty of other issues that sink the Dems. They will become greedy, just like the GOP did when they had control.

    Then the economy may come back within the next four years and Obama and the Dems will become heros. When in actuality, the cyclical downturn will probably last less than a year anyway. In any case, 2010 or 2012 is very unrealistic...IMHO.

    Probaly 2010, Democrats are making some classic political blunders, understandable since they have such a big majority right now.

    You will either be right by 2012, or it will be a long road. The messages are mixed. The Republicans really screwed up, with many going to third parties, present company tending that way.

    The House has never changed hands without the Senate doing so too. So who knows.

    The problem is that Obama is repeating the mistakes of the Bush Adminstration his first week in office. Deficit spending obviously didn't work for Bush and it won't work for Obama. 2010/12 is only possible if the Republicans act like conservatives. If they can keep this up, it's doable.

    At this point, Republicans are all wishing it's 2010 or 2012. Because if Obama ends up doing good, the Republican party might really begin to head the way of the dinosaur.
