Hurtling Toward 2010, 9/10

The 2010 midterms are just around the corner (sort of). Here's what's happening:

Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) woke up Thursday morning with a tougher-than-expected reelection challenge on his hands after shouting "You lie!" at the president--Democratic challenger Rob Miller, who came within eight points of Wilson in '08, had raised $200k since Wilson's outburst as of midday Thursday, though the Cook Political Report says it's still a safe district for Republicans; the same Cook report moved Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's reelection race from "likely Democratic" into the "toss-up" column, citing sagging poll numbers for Reid; and The Weekly Standard hears from two sources that Hillary Clinton is considering stepping down as secretary of State in the fall to run for governor of New York, which would definitely shake up the race...picture a showdown between Clinton and Giuliani.
