In response to jackbu's comment:
I guess you were typing without thinking and really don't want Scott Brown as governor.
No..it is more that I thought the conversation had ended..but if you need additional attention then I will indulge you for a few minutes.
First..in response to your subsequent post..I never said anything about Brown's character. I criticized his voting record and his campaign..particularly the way he handled the whole Native American heritage thing with Warren. I said time and time again that it was a non-starter for him since there was no proof either way. So..your statement that I "defamed his character" his simply nonsense...and I think you are confusing my comments with your own.
Regardless of what you choose to believe I would vote for Brown for Governor. I have a history of voting GOP when it comes to MA Governor. Baker was the first GOP candidate for governor that I didn't support..primarily because I think he is an idiot as a person. I have stated on many..many occasions over the years that I believe in balance in government. I don't think any party should have absolute majority.
I would not vote to send Brown back to the Senate. I didn't like the filibustering he did..nor did I like the fact that he co-sponsored the Blunt amendment. I have stated from day one that the Blunt Amendment thing cost him my vote. It's really that simple.
Brown is no dummy..I think he's got the smarts and the ability to work with the dems that would be a valuable asset in the corner office. I have always thought it important to have a republican governor to keep the democratic legislature of MA in check.
I didn't vote for Coakley for Senate..but I support her completely in her role as Attorney General. Funny how that works..isn't it?? Unlike some people..I don't choose to put people in categories and leave them there...rather..I prefer to see the potential of each individual in the right role. The senate was not the right role for Brown. Too much potential influence of a national GOP party that seems to have simply lost it's collective mind.
If you're still actually reading..then I will add this. I don't see Brown running for (potentially) Kerry's senate seat after all. Doing so would mean a campaign for a special election in 2013...then a campaign for election in 2014( when Kerry's term would end). That's 4 senate runs in as many years. I don't think he goes that way. Much simpler to run of for Governor of MA...and set himself up for an eventual White House run.
