For the record I don't see this as a repudiation of Obama. MA voters acted in their self-interest. Coakley is a pretentious c**t and MA already has a required health care insurance system. MA gains nothing but additional taxes voting for Coakley and indirectly the health care bill. In fact their share of the federal tax bill would likely increase a great deal with no benefit to the state.
Further, for Brown to keep the seat he will have to move to the left and he probably knows it. I would expect the only bills he will vote against Democrats are the current Health Care bill and Cap and Trade. No doubt he will vote for alternatives.
Do not agree. ANYONE the dems put up in that state should win without even a campaign. Obama won by over 30 pints.
They put a drunk, womanizing, far left murderer in the seat for the last 50 years.
The GOP win in that state was a sharp rebuke of Omama and his socialist congressional cronies. Their days are numbered. Most will be out of office this Nov. unless they make a radical shift to the center.
