Movin' on up…

…on the Eastside.

The WaPo's Chris Cillizza moves WA-8 up a couple notches (from 19 to 17) on his list of Congressional seats most likely to change hands. He credits Darcy Burner with being "an improved candidate," but sees a win coming from Presidential coattails...
If Obama wins big in the 8th, he is likely to carry Burner along with him.
Yep, that's likely. I'm not sure those coattails are essential to Democratic victory in the 8th, but they'd certainly be helpful. That's true, I suspect, for seat after seat, in state after state. If Obama wins as big as I think he should, and believe he can, it could change the Congressional map dramatically.

Hat tip to Goldy.
