The battle for the House remains in its infant stages -- like ole Charlie Fix -- but some early trends are starting to take shape.

Three appearances by prominent GOP officials in the last 72 hours have perfectly encapsulated the three distinct paths available to the Republican party as it seeks to re-invent and rebuild in advance of the 2010 midterm elections and the coming 2012 presidential election.
Cable television has been all over the story and the Democratic National Committee got in on the act -- sending out a release touting the poll with the headline "'Nuff Said" and featuring an MSNBC screen shot of Limbaugh, Cheney as well as Sen.

It was a stunner last night -- state Sen. Creigh Deeds crushed the competition in the Democratic primary for governor, winning a stunning 50 percent of the vote in a three-way field.
The victory by moderate state Sen. Creigh Deeds (D) last night in Virginia coupled with the release of a new poll in New Jersey that shows former U.S. Attorney Chris Christie (R) leading Gov. Jon Corzine (D) by 10 points -- at at 50 percent! -- raises the question as to whether the national GOP's best pickup chance might be in the Garden State rather than the Commonwealth this fall.
State Sen. Creigh Deeds' overwhelming victory in last night's Virginia gubernatorial primary ensures that he will become a national figure over the next five months with both national parties focused intently on the general election and what it tells us (if anything) about the 2010 midterm elections and the 2012 presidential.

Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley's declaration -- via Twitter -- that "I'm no NAIL" has made headlines around the country and reinforced (to our mind) why politicians should stay far away from the micro-blogging service.

National Republicans, desperate for a bit of good news, have seized on new polling out of the Gallup organization that shows the American people growing increasingly skeptical of not only the direction of the economy but the approach being taken by President Barack Obama.
