Can long-term losses be used to offset short-term gains?

I have some long-term carryovers and some stocks that I think will undergo pullbacks before long.

If the long-term carryovers can be used to offset short-term gains, it would probably be worth my while to sell and rebuy, rather than toughing it out through a pullback.
