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
— Steve Clemons
