    1) I think I can name at least three (Bush, FDR, Johnson), so the last part is wrong.

    2) What do you mean by "outed part tends to clean up"? Since FDR, the outed party has received an average of about 14 seats in the first mid-term election... only two Presidents (Clinton, Truman) experienced the sort of huge loss expected for Obama.

    I read that and thought to myself "crazy talk!" -- but looking at the final RCP #'s, it's feasible. They have the Pubs at 224 now. With 44 in the toss up category, they would need to gain a net 66% for your prediction to hold true.

    Buuuuuut... I'm still a skeptic! I've got a much more conservative prediction of 55-56.

    Bet you a virtual beer they don't make it to 75!

    This isn't the same country as it was 60 years ago, the politics aren't the same, what it means to be a Rep or Dem doesn't mean now what it does then, the issues are very different, comparison for the purpose of prediction is weak at best.
