    so I know the drill and hence my joke above.  But hey the Coakley/Brown thing worked out in the end for us big time with Warren. I constantly think of my mom who passed away in the fall of 2009.  She would have happily voted for Coakley, and enthusiastically for Warren.  And the latest consolation prize is DeBlasio here in NYC.  His wife is a native of Longmeadow (yay!)- apparently one of the first AA families to move there (against a racist WASP brigade that fought them) in the early 60's.

      That would be cool. Red Sox Nation muscling in on the Big Apple.

      Just another underemployed IT professional computer geek.

      isolation. BUT it hurt our country quite a bit. I wish I could recall for sure the exact legislation but Brown stopped Obama's agenda as the 60th Republican vote in the Senate for many months. Some efforts were lost/failed completely and we live in that reality even now. We had a Dem House for part of his term.

      I can't tell if Brown's nation wide damage is on the whole worth getting Warren. Depends on how bad his damage was. I love Warren and worked on her campaign and she's been great but I hope it ends up worth it for our country. It seems to have been for MA.

      Brown got in because voters for Senate thought more about MA than for our whole country. Myself, I held my nose and voted for Coakley.
