  •  Governors have real work to do. Brown made an art (4+ / 0-)

    of voting for his overlord's agenda except when the result was a foregone conclusion, and he could pretend to be independent.   No heavy lifting by Brown as Senator.  Governors can't play that game so easily.  Plus, the kings and queens don't tend to take up so much of their time.
    I agree with you about Markey's seat being a more likely option, but I do think that Warren was opening up her lead at the end of the campaign, in some measure because folks were starting to catch on to what a phony Brown really is. He might have felt that a more conservative state was a better bet for him, and I don't discount that theory.  

    •  His voting record was bizarre. (5+ / 0-)

      He maintained he was pro-choice, but he supported the Blunt Amendment which would dramatically curb access to birth control. He voted against equal pay for women in addition to casting some anti-LGBT votes as well. Not good positions to take for a senator from Massachusetts.
