Broken Democracy Watch

In a democratic society, should the following ever be the case? From Yahoo

While technically all 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives are up for grabs in November, handicappers expect a mere 33 to be competitive, in part because many incumbents already have picked the voters they hope will return them to office.
