One smart Capitol Hill observer E-mails me: "In my view, the Democrats will have a working majority even if they fall a few votes short of 60. One of the close races is Maine, but Republican Senator Susan Collins appears to be pulling away. If she wins, Democrats will often be able to get her vote and that of her Republican colleague Olympia Snowe on most domestic issues."
