OK, roll the dice, and take your chance. Yesterday I went through the Presidential permutation. Today it’s the less spectacular, but no less important, congressional elections. They’ve had far less attention, because there is virtually no chance the House of Representatives — the true seat of American government — will change hands. It’s currently run by the Republicans who hold a 50-seat majority, 240-190 (and five vacancies). N0 more than 30 seats are likely to change hands, in both directions.
