I suspect 2010 will not be quite the bonanza for the left half of the single party that 2008 was. Key factors are quality of challengers, how much traction stimulus has in the voters view of the economy and where the health care debate ends up. The democrats are stuck there - with the middle moving against the notion (disapproval sitting at about 55%) if it passes that could hurt them. If they don't pass it they seem ineffective given the majority they enjoy. Long term for the left the strategy must be to pass reform even if it means losing both houses - that ground can be regained later the opportunity will probably never loom this large against to pass their bill.
