Visitors to WashingtonPost.com can play pundit by filling out a "Midterm Madness" bracket with their picks for every open seat in the Senate and Houseand the site provides plenty of educational features for the novice politico, including predictions from top political journalists, tips about incumbent advantages, and which hot races will go down to the wire. Keep in mind, this doesn't excuse you from actually going to your local polling place to vote. But nice try.
