RNC Chair, Former DNC Chair, Spar Over Midterms

Undated (AP) -- How much will Iraq matter at the polls in a few weeks?

Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe thinks "50 to 60" Republican seats in Congress are in jeopardy because of the war.

He tells NBC's "Today" show Democrats would win back the House and Senate if the election were today, but he warns that anything can happen between now and November seventh.

The current Republican Chairman, Ken Mehlman, also appeared on "Today." He's predicting a much different outcome in the midterm elections, saying voters don't want the US to "cut and run" from Iraq and don't want higher taxes.
