ABC News’ Rick Klein reports: Another week, another shift in the political landscape that seems to favor the Republican Party in its bid to take over control of Congress this fall.

Political handicapper Charlie Cook is now saying it’s “more likely than not” that Republicans will pick up at least the 39 seats they’d need to take control of the House.

In the Senate, meanwhile, the primary results in Washington State this week make clear that Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., is in for a dogfight through the fall against Republican Dino Rossi. If seats like hers are in play, Republicans have at least an outside shot of winning the 10 seats they need to take over in the Senate.

We chatted about that – plus President Obama’s involvement in the proposed Islamic center in Lower Manhattan, and Sen. John McCain’s primary contest next week – on ABC/Washington Post’s “Top Line,” today, with our “Post Politics” player Perry Bacon Jr.
