I know you are making a prediction but I am just curious. If the Republicans are at 51 seats on the night of Dec 6th, what difference does the run off on Jan 6th make ? Only makes Obama look bad for breaking his end of the year promise. Your theory makes sense if the Republicans and Democrats end up with 49 seats on Nov 4th. Louisiana's run off is on Dec 6th. Georgia's run off is on Jan 6th. Should we all pray for a Republican senate on Nov 4th for the EO to arrive in Nov-Dec ? I am torn.
