The article presents information related to the upcoming midterm elections in the United States. According to a political report, the Democrats need to pick up fifteen seats to take control of the U.S. House. But if the Democrats obtain a majority in the U.S. Congress in 2006, it would not be a progressive majority. Howard Dean, Democratic National Committee Chair, has acquired the wrath of the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House leaders by refusing to focus all of his group's funds on the next election.
