Should Democrats Hope for a Government Shutdown?

Politico: "They'd never say it publicly. But catch many Democrats in an honest moment and they would admit that a Republican-led government shut down this fall might be the best thing -- perhaps the only thing -- that could revive their fading hopes of capturing the House next year...Nothing short of a powerful jolt -- a moment that grabs casual voters by the lapels and makes them take notice -- is likely to alter the landscape in a dramatic way. A shutdown could be it, Democrats argue, putting in play GOP-leaning districts now thought to be all but out of reach."
