    two Senatorial elections held within such a short time span, it's another campaign that the people of Massachusetts should not have to endure. Not again. Not so soon.

      ... and this time we'll have an actual candidate.  I live in Markey's district now, and I used to live in Capuano's (and in Somerville when he was Mayor Mike).  Both of them will be at every D town meeting and know the value of having people go door-to-door.  Frankly, any of our congressional delegation would be a good candidate against Brown.

      And this spring I'll be available to work my own town or one of the two adjacent.  So our biggest problem will be to get the college kids to vote absentee before they leave.

      Scott Brown has some bad-idea votes to justify, and I know that will be one of the big talking points (at least for me and mine).  

      Believe it or not, after the Warren campaign, there are a lot of people who were trying to figure out what to do with the excess energy.  Now we've got a project.
