    •  What happens if Brown wins? (1+ / 0-)

      Even so the especial election will consume a huge amount of the oxygen in our national conversation and distract from doing anything.  Paralysis as we wait for the voters of Massachusetts to decide.  And remember it is a blue state so there is not a big OFA operation.  Whose voters will come out?  What faux outrage will become a deciding factor in this election?  Sorry but John Kerry ain't and will never be General Marshall.

      Far from a guarantee. And a needless risk. Senate seats are important. Dems only have a few votes to spare for majority support on bills and still have Conservadems to worry about. A Brown win gets the GOP that much closer to taking the Senate in 2014, when a lot of vulnerable Democrats are up.

      I notice a lot of the people so sure Brown can be beaten DO NOT LIVE in Massachusetts and don't work on campaigns here.

      Republicans...think the American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. Harry S. Truman
