Regardless, I'm not trying to come up with crazy predictive theories here.  Just noting one potential downside.  I think Durbin will get it over Schumer as of now. 

I don't get how Schumer isn't favored.  Half of the Democrat caucus owe their seats to him, and the other half are Jewish.  Don't tell me that won't play a role in the balloting.

1) Schumer is obnoxious.
2) Schumer + Pelosi would be a very bad face for the Democratic Party - New York City and San Francisco liberals who embody everything people in "flyover country" hate.  Durbin is at least from "flyover country".
3) Reid could still win and keep his current job. (Medium-low probability)
4) Democrats could lose control of the Senate, rendering this debate moot. (Low probability, but possible)
5) Schumer and Durban's religion doesn't really matter.  If it mattered, a Mormon would never be Majority Leader.
6) The only people Senators owe their seat to are the people who voted for them.

Why are people quoting a post from mine in January?  I have retracted the Durbin prediction since then, despite holding onto it way too long.

This should be updated, now Schumer isn't gonna be majority leader anytime soon, Reid likely will stay.

Even if Red wins (which looks pretty likely right now), he might resign as Majority Leader anyway.

If Cuomo is elected governor (and presumably reelected in 2014), do you think he might make a run for the 2016 Dem. presidential nomination, to take on President Romney (or President Pawlenty)?  He should pick a Southern woman as a running mate, for gender and regional balance.  Perhaps either Sen. Hagan of NC or Sen. Landrieu of LA?
