Democrat strategist James Carville, author of the new book 40 More Years: How the Democrats Will Rule the Next Generation, has sent out a fund-raising e-mail warning Democrats that the GOP could rebound in 2010 and take over the Senate just as they did in 1994. In that year, just two years into the Clinton Administration, Republicans took control of both houses from the Democrats for the first time since 1952, winning 8 new seats in the Senate 54 new seats in the House.

The former Clinton political aide also focused specifically on Missouri’s open-seat senate race. He noted that history is on the side of Republicans here because “in every midterm election since the Civil War – save three – the president’s party has lost seats in Congress.”
