At least thats how political journalist Chris Matthews sees it.
Usually, off-year elections get less attention than Presidential elections but, according to Matthews, not this years vote.
In his words, I dont see this as a prelude [to the 2008 presidential election], but as the Main Event.
Part of the reason why Matthews is convinced that the voter decisions in this years election could have lasting repercussions to the countrys international standing.
As he puts, If the Democrats win big, the world press will read this as a rejection of the war.
Matthews will be discussing the election in depth on his nightly MSNBC talk show, Hardball, and his syndicated series, The Chris Matthews Show.
