Did the editor of Politico's Daily Digest notice that the arrangement of the two top stories this morning played directly into the Dem playbook?  We sure did.

The first headline is "Democratic donors prepare for disappointment," and the sub-headline reads "The plan is to shift focus to 2016, when Democrats face a much more hospitable Senate map."  And sure enough, Politico's very next story obliges Dem desires.   The headline: "Why a GOP Senate could be short-lived," and the sub-headline reads "A half-dozen blue-state Republicans could be in trouble during the 2016 elections."
