     And the bad thing is I think he had a better shot against Warren than the entrenched Kerry. I don't like Warren. I am rather unhappy with this result.




    I think Kerry takes over for Hillary, and Brown will win a special election some time in the near future.  I can't see Capuano, Markey, or any of the others beating him in a special election.

    Hillary will go on to become our 1st female president, after a much deserved break from politics.

    Hillary will not be president. History shows us that a Repub will be president in 2016

    It hard to catch lightning in a bottle once never mind twice. Brown is done in our state . He had every advantage against Warren except where he stood on issues that matter to a majority of the voters of this state and he looked real bad with his political grandstanding, his Scalia comment ,being a bully towards Warren and his transfer to the Maryland National Guard

    Just curious...if Warren was a man would you still consider Brown to have been a bully?

    Re: Warren beats Brown

    Brown's best suited to be a Congressmen, not a US Senator. 

    A Senator has too much power for any one seat to be in the hands of the Republicans.  Another Congressional seat in the hands of the Republicans won't mean that much.  Plus, as a Congressman, Brown can excel at what he's good at - constituency relations.  And it allows his views to be truly to be reflective of the smaller constituency.

    Brown just doesn't have the presence to be a Senator.  He seemed never to have an agenda other than to do whatever he can to stay in office.  He lacked conviction.

    Sorry, but a platform of, "I compromise", is OK if he was running as an independent.  But not when he is a position to allow Mitch McConnell to control the Agenda in the Senate.  Not when he's in a position to allow Global Warming deniers to gain power positions in the Senate.

    Sad, I did like Brown but in such a politically divided country he fell victim to party politics.

    If the majority control of Senate wasn't an issue I think he would've won re-election handily.

    He is a victim of the craven politics of his wingnut party, nothing more.

    Maybe he'll run again....



    Nicely said mate.  The ink wasn't dry on the ballots and local TV is already talking about his running for Governor.

    There is also talk of Obama putting Kerry in his cabinet, which would kick off another special election.

    Intersting place this, Massachusetts

    I don't think so . Believe it or not but I think there is a code of conduct that men should adhere to when speaking to women. I think a male politician who is being respectful to a woman politician in a debate but still making his point can look like graceful and at ease with himself. I find being graceful a great quality in a person. I wish I had it.

    An appeal to nativism connects only with a prejudiced few.  It turns of many others.  You might think about that.

    But I thought women are supposed to be our equals? Either they are or they aren't. I happen to think they are and therefore shouldn't be treated any differently except for one area. No man should EVER hit a woman....EVER. I don't care what the circumstance is. Never acceptable.

    Brown fell victim to the gimmie population that has grown up in this state overthe last fourty years.  that, and the public unions.  How the heck are the people winners here?




    Maybe selfish people aren't winners today !



    Wrong.  It is the selfish people who are the winners, and the public unions.  I recieved about $1,000 worth of very slick Warren campaign flyers from the Mass Teachers Association on behalf of Warren.  

    Seems like the children lose in that bargain.  That money could have paid for about 100 more teachers.  Instead, It was flushed down the drain to support someone who will brak the bank to give teachers fatted calf pensions.

    I think you are partly right, but come on.  Brown bent over backwards to appease liberals with his votes, but again, given the choice between a half a loaf, and a full loaf, the liberals took the full loaf.  

    When will repbulicans learn they can't outspend the liberals unless they actually outspend the liberals?  It is a poor strategy, always has been.  Moderation is done in this country, if it ever really existed.

    I saw an interesting observation; Brown won first time because it was a special election with low voter turnout. His re-election was in a presidential year is what hurt him. The implication being that the conservative/moderates have some influence in MA in off years but not enough in the big years.

    and Brown bent over backwards to support republican filibusters every chance he got. I hope they change the senate rules back to the original filibuster rules. It would be my first priority.

    still crazy as ever.  How much time would you like obama to spend in NY and Jersey?  He went to see the area first hand and right away, not like 5 days after the fact like bush 43.

    I don't think Kerry gets hillary's job, in fact deval has a better chance.  Even if he does, Brown will not win and simply because of math.  The dems will not stay home this time to let their senate seat slide away.

    Spoken like a true Democrat. Who gives an f about the people of NJ and NY he got the job he doesn't need them now. You'd be speaking a different tune if you were out in the cold with a northeaster coming your way.
