Nothing About Any Election Is Set In Stone

As November approaches, the number of vulnerable Republican-held House seats is said to grow. This despite repeated claims Republican-led redistricting had “locked” up the House for Republicans.  

After George H.W. Bush beat Mike Dukakis in 1988, it was said Republicans had an Electoral College “lock” that Democrats could not break. Yet Democrat Bill Clinton won the White House in 1992 and 1996.  

Circumstances change and people change their minds. Nothing is ever locked in any election. It does matter who draws the lines—and the 2006 elections are still weeks away—but to say defeat is set in stone because of how the lines are drawn is neither productive or true.
