Handicapping next year’s Senate races.

(H/T: Instapundit) The Politico’s list of vulnerable Senate seats is interesting, interesting, interesting.  This is not turning out to be a Democratic cycle, as witnessed by the fact that only two of the top eight vulnerable are Republicans.  In their order of sitting incumbents*:

Dodd (CT)
Reid (NV)
Lincoln (AR)
Bennet (CO)
Specter (PA)
Vitter (LA)
Boxer (CA)
Burr (NC)

Of those eight, the only one that I’d quibble over is Vitter: he’s theoretically vulnerable over the escort thing, but the story’s been out for a while and he’s still crushing Melancon.  Not that I expect us to win all of the other six… but we’re going to pick off at least half of them if the country stays on its current path.

No, I’m not going to say which ones. Where’s the fun in that?

*The open seat ones are also interesting, but hard to assess this far out.
