CNN BlogStock & WNYC’s Brian Lehrer Show Tonight — All Night


I’ve just arrived up at Tryst Coffee Shop in Adams Morgan/Washington, DC where some of the biggest bloggers in the business are doing a sleep-over with CNN’s blog mistresses, Jacki Schechner and Abby Tatton.
I’ve dubbed this “BlogStock”, and the CNN folks seem to like the moniker.
I’ll also be reporting on election returns live thoughout the evening on WNYC’s Brian Lehrer Show along with my friend on the other side of the aisle and the guy who puts the “pun” in “pundit,” Robert George.
Some quick thoughts on today though.
I’ve received quite a few emails from Rhode Island suggesting that Lincoln Chafee appears to be doing better than expected and most of the folks I am hearing from are not thrilled with Whitehouse’s loss of steam. Some blame me — but I think all of the responsibility lies with the relative performance of two very good candidates.
it’s dangerous to do this, but let me put out my predictions — though I hope I’m wrong and underestimating Democratic strength:

Senate — 51 Republicans, 47 Dems, 2 Independents
House — 234 Dems 201 Republicans

More soon.

    BlogStock. Nice!
    Personally, I voted for 1 Republican candidate and the rest Democrats. I’d like to see Congress hold the White House a little more accountable. I suspect that if the President had to address Congress on a more regular (and public) basis like the Prime Minister answers questions in the House of Commons in the UK, he’d be far less detached.

    It is surprising you would “hope I’m wrong and underesimating Democratic strength,” after so strongly expressing your wish that the Republicans keep the Senat and encouraging the vote for Chafee. I personally have nothing against Mr. Chafee but in this all important vote you can’t have your cake and eat it too.
