Win by losing?

The link below will zoom you to an interesting analysis, from Slate, of why the best thing for either party, in the upcoming "mid-term elections" may be to lose.

May the Best Man Lose

For my non-American friends, the "mid-terms" are elections in which the Presidency isn't up for grabs, but the House of Representatives (the lower house) is, and so is one third of the Senate.

The one thing the article ignores, however, is what I consider to be the biggest reason why Democrats can't afford to lose: They don't have a candidate who can win the next Presidential election, which is two years away. In my estimation, no-one can touch John McCain in 2008. So, unless we want another six years of imbalanced government, the Democrats better show well in November.
