  •  What's wrong with Massachusetts? (10+ / 0-)

    This should not be close; Warren should win easily.

    I'm from the Elizabeth Warren and Darcy Burner Wing of the Democratic Party!

    •  Warren is a woman (6+ / 0-)

      Ma has an issue with woman politicians. They have never elected a woman statewide except for atty general as far as I know.

    •  brown (6+ / 0-)

      is projecting good enough image that he is an independent who votes with people

      lots of independents and conservative democrats (hillary) who hated coakley and need more convincing of warren.

      •  Yup... (2+ / 0-)

        Rarely watch tv but the other day saw a sickly sweet awe shucks Senator Centerfold is such a wholesome family guy and manly husband to successful television newscaster ad....it ended with some still photo pictures of him and his wife, with the last image being one of her sitting on the couch leaning back and looking up at him who was standing behind it and over her kissing her...I gagged because he is such a fake and phoney and the fact they think this crap is what the election should be all about...image not substance...apparently trying to appealing to emotional (young female voters no doubt)...and never once in that ad was it mentioned that he is the RepubliCON candiate .(for Wall Street).

        Scott Brown is the Republicon Senator up for reelection in MA...yet he is afraid of that republicon label. Typical  style over substance hypocritical wannabe republicon hack..

        •  It's impossible to avoid (0+ / 0-)

          I rarely watch local channels (RI is part of most MA stations' coverage area and vice versa) but when I do I almost always encounter this same ad which lets us know that he let his wife have a career which makes him a special kind of guy.
          Maybe he should address the fact that thanks to his party's contributions it's no longer an option for one spouse not to work.

            Especially on the policies they endorse.

            But another way to look at it is even more patronizing and condescending. It is, Scott is so special, because he let his wife have her successful career as a television reporter/anchor.  How belittling that is to women everywhere....as if women need permission from their spouses to keep their careers...but in the authortiarian republicon world, the attitude of the little wife needing/seeking permission from the husband is the predominant point of view.

    •  Nothing. Brown is a hell of a politician. (6+ / 0-)

      As I said last year:

      I'm all for it...BUT (38+ / 0-)
      a Senate campaign is a different sort of animal. Being a modern politician is not something that comes naturally. Scott Brown has been running for office for 20 years and he's good at it.

      I hope she gets a good crack political team behind her.

    •  MAs largest religion (0+ / 0-)

      Catholic.   The Warren-Brown race will be close because the Liberal MA myth is not true across the entire range of issues.  Where I work, Brown is much more popular in a largely Catholic, rural town.
