Are We Gearing Up For An Obama Landslide?

I’ve spent the entire weekend packing for my move back east next week. I leave Los Angeles on the 19th and there is so much to do. I’ve barely had a chance to read the news, but this caught my eye during my late night browse:

Barring a dramatic change in the political landscape over the next three weeks, Democrats appear headed toward a decisive victory on Election Day that would give them broad power over the federal government.

The victory would send Barack Obama to the White House and give him larger Democratic majorities in both the House of Representatives and the Senate — and perhaps a filibuster-proof margin there.

That could mark a historic realignment of the country’s politics on a scale with 1932 or 1980, when the out party was given power it held for a generation, and used it to transform government’s role in American society.

McClatchy reports more: Obama, a 47-year-old first-term senator from Illinois, is now well positioned to win the Electoral College. He’s comfortably holding most of the “blue” states that went for Democrats Al Gore and John Kerry in past elections, polls show, and he’s gaining momentum to take away several “red” states that have voted Republican in recent elections, including Florida, Ohio, Colorado and Virginia.

The Democrats are also widely expected to take big gains in House and Senate races. Like Obama, they’re reaching deep into once solid Republican territory. Even such stalwarts as North Carolina Sen. Elizabeth Dole and Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell, the Senate Republican leader, could be in jeopardy.

Bring on the Democratic Landslide… America knows we don’t need more of the same!
