CHRIS MATTHEWS: Leading off tonight, SOS for progressives. For those on the left, watching tomorrow night's election returns promises to be like the Battle of the Alamo, as seen from inside the Mission.  The latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll has devastating data for Democrats.

Does that make Sharron Angle Santa Anna? ;-)
