  •  I suspect that Warren is toast (1+ / 0-)

    unless Brown shoots himself in the feet, Akin-style, or if Obama has extremely long and strong coattails in November. From everything I've read here and elsewhere posted by Massachusetts residents, her ads are not particularly strong as compared to the pablum Brown is producing, and she's swimming against a long-standing tide of patriarchial (if not overtly misogynist) attitudes when it comes to female politicians in Massachusetts.

    •  Warren can win without Brown (3+ / 0-)

      shooting himself in the foot, but it will require a good effort to tie him to the rest of his party while also making Warren easier to connect with.  Not easy tasks as the window of opportunity starts closing, but not a long-shot either, IMHO.
