    I've heard her speak at a local rally and in person she comes off as knowledgeable and quite likeable. Really, you have to be brain dead or a Republican not to get that she's a much better candidate than Brown could ever hope to be, and she'll be a great senator for MA, and by extension, will do good for the country. There is an ad getting plenty of play on the Brown University radio station that IIRC includes our President speaking about her. I'll pay attention to the content next time -- I don't now cuz she's got my vote already. Also, the votes of at least 2 dozen people I know. The signs I see in town for Brown -- same yards that typically put up Republican signs. I'm not saying she's a shoe-in, she's got work to do, but she is out there and she is putting in the hard work and the hours. In Fall River, she's got the support of local activists. Check out http://coalitionforsocialjustice.org -- they had her as a keynote speaker.

      while I type this so this isn't an insult.  But, listeners to the Brown University Radio station will not decide this election.  My 4 brothers' in law and my brother (all MA residents) will decide this election.  They think the Republican party has gone off the rails and will probably vote for Obama.  But, they think Brown is nice guy and they like those "Scott Brown from the road" pick-up truck ads he is in. I am repeating myself but the Warren Campaign is doing a terrible job of defining Brown.  They don't even appear to be trying.  Her ads are good and appealing and positive about her.  But, they have to make him appear to people as the Republican he is.
