    Check out the polls at Real Clear Politics (http://www.realclearpolitics.com/latestpolls/)

    Senate Ratings on left-hand column:
    RCP now estimates that Dems will have a net gain of 5-6 seats (6 are needed to take the Senate). Several races (Klobuchar in MN, Cantwell in WA) have been moved from “leans Democrat” to “likely Democrat” in the last few days.

    It’s looking good, but there’s work to do. Heed the strategic advice from excellent column by Robt Kuttner in todays Boston Globe( a trenchant analysis of Foley scandal: http://www.boston.com/news/globe/editorial_opinion/oped/articles/2006/10/07/same_song_different_scandal/). Relevant excerpts:
    “Throughout the Bush era, voters have not always connected the dots. The Foley scandal now enveloping the House Republican leadership offers a belated opportunity for voters to make some connections.. . .there is a consistent theme . . . [he mentions energy, prescription drugs, oil/Iraq, and pedophilia as examples. . mbk] . . of the fox guarding the chicken coop . .
    The Foley affair,. . . was an accident waiting to happen. . . a logical product of the cynicism, opportunism, and hypocrisy that pervade the Bush era. . .if the Democrats are shrewd, they will help voters connect these dots.”

    Hope you’re right, but let’s not take anything for granted. The election’s a month away and Dems biggest challenge is to get out the vote. The other side is already well positioned to do that.
