    Rep. Joann Emerson said something similar when Democrats took control of the House, about being able to vote her conscience more.

      I agree.  It seems to me that Brown has to run as independent a campaign as possible this time, and having such a quote doesn't necessarily do him harm; if anything, he can appeal to independents by saying he doesn't do the GOP leadership's bidding in Washington.  I just wish someone would publish a good analysis of his actual voting record which, with just a few exceptions, surely will show that indeed he has voted lockstep with other GOPers.  (And such analysis should also review the "procedural" votes where he's continually voted with the filibusterers).
