Wishful Thinking

Here’s something kind of interesting in this article about Bob Ney’s besieged Democratic successor:

Both parties see Mr. Space’s seat as an important prize. The 18th Congressional District, which Mr. Space represents, is Republican territory; President Bush received 57 percent of the vote here in 2004. Winning the seat is essential for Republicans to regain control of the House next year, said David Cohen, a political science professor at the University of Akron. [Emphasis mine]

Huh. Does anyone actually see this as a possibility? It seems like since 2006 the goal of the Republican Party has just been to avoid hemorrhaging more seats. Sure they might be able to take this particular seat back, but overall what are the odds another coup as dramatic as 2006 but in reverse?
