    "Ten months out, one of the factors in the 2008 House elections guaranteed to favor a Democratic Party consolidation following the 2006 wave is "terrain." While it is surely far too early to make definitive judgments about the vote itself, a rash of Republican retirements in competitive districts has left the party standing on unmistakably defensive terrain for 2008. Questions of finance and turnout aside, this brings significant opportunities for Democrats to seize a larger majority."
