ABSTRACT
The article argues that Democrats have deluded themselves into the possibility that could increase their chances of controlling the U.S. House of Representatives. The grassroots activists in the Internet believe that Gary Trauner has a chance of sending a Democrat from Wyoming to Congress. Meanwhile, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, chaired by Howard Dean, is subsidizing staff positions in all the states.
