Ensign Lowering Expectations for 2008

The ensignificant Senator from Nevada readily admits to the Washington Times that he expects a net loss in the 2008 Senate contest. Of course, he doesn't quite say it like that:

"The odds are that we are going to have more risks than they will, and it turns out that we do have more risks," he said.
He singled out five Republican seats that are in danger in Colorado, Maine, Minnesota, Oregon and New Hampshire, compared with two vulnerable Democratic incumbents in South Dakota and Louisiana and long-shot possibilities in Iowa and Montana.

Keep in mind that Democrats consider Iowa and Montana relatively save. Ensign also claims to have cleaned house and to have reorganized the NRSC. Wonder if that happened before or after some staffer at the NRSC floated the idea of an Ensign presidential run...
