    something that would sink his chances of getting reelected, fast. His only chance is to detach himself as much as possible from the Republican candidate.

      internal polling that shows him a weaker position. I don't think he's worrying about being the VP nominee. He's going to be in the fight of his life, just to get reelected.

      Assuming MA allows a Senator to be on the ballot in both places (Delaware did last time), those MA voters who like Brown won't vote for his reelection if he's on the ticket with the Republican Presidential nominee...he'll lose twice.

      I don't think it's realistic that Brown is contemplating being anyone's running mate.

      And Perry would never choose him!  He's a ruby red wingnut, he'll pick a fellow wingnut.  Picking Brown wouldn't help him with the middle, it would hurt him with the right, and it would kill Brown in his own state.

      •  Remember, Perry and Giuliani are BFFs (0+ / 0-)

        I don't think Perry wants to be seen as that far right. I think Rudy would be Perry's first choice, but don't think Rudy would want to play second fiddle to anyone.

        If Scott Brown gets a credible opponent, and unemployment is above 9% by convention time '12, I think Brown could see VP as a better shot than re-election to the Senate.
