two weeks to the elections
Very interesting piece in Newsweek about Harold Ford Jr.'s chances of winning the race for Bill Frist's Senate seat in Tennessee.
It is still entirely too early to attempt to call what's going to happen in any one race (or who will take the House and Senate), but it's pretty clear to me that which party ends up controlling the Senate will largely depend on whether Tennesseans will vote for an African-American Democrat. Race will likely still be an issue, as will being a Democrat. We'll see.
