Democratic 60 seat filibuster-proof majority now possible

It could happen... not only an Obama presidency, but a Democratic 60 seat filibuster-proof majority. An Obama presidency now appears likely, especially since Obama is now polling +5 in VA - a must win state for McCain. Obama can win without VA, McCain probably can't.
Democrats are poised to pick up Republican seats in Alaska, Colorado, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, and Virginia.

With the current state of play, they need only two more. The candidate states are Minnesota, where Sen. Norm Coleman (R-MN) is in a close battle with Al Franken (D) and Mississippi, where appointed senator Roger Wicker (R) is fighting former governor Ronnie Musgrove (D).

Here's where they stand in recent polls:

Survey USA (9/15) - MN Senate

41% - Coleman [R]
40% - Franken [D]

Research 2000 (9/10) - MS Senate:

48% - Wicker [R]
43% - Musgrove [D]
RCP: When Wicker's conservative House district flipped to the Democrats in a May special election, it sparked the view of this race as one to watch. That election marked the third vacant GOP seat that Democrats won this year.

It could happen!!!

Thanks to Dubya...
