I amaze myself sometimes.

Mulligan.

Ahem........

This could well be the biggest election in American history.
This could be a clear message as to who runs the country.

Brown does not even have to win.
Obama carried MA by 31%.
A 5% victory margin or less (maybe even a Republican win) will have heads spinning!!
And a fair amount of headline "spinning" as well.


Your thoughts??



(thank God I am the only one here that ever makes a mistake, my apologies, I was in a hurry to go out for dinner);)

I'd say, drink a little toast to that much more important date as a good remembrance. Massachusetts will take care of itself.

Well, life goes on and I have a wonderful partner again.

As for MA, I thought we could have some discussion for a short time before we meander off on a tangent.
And we will!!


Long underwear regards......

If there's high vote turnout and a narrow margin, or even a republican win, it will be very significant, and troubling for the DNC. If there's voter apathy, low turnouts, then it won't matter as much. The republicans really can't lose. If they lose, oh well, its MA....what did everyone expect? If they win with low turnout, they will no doubt celebrate and embellish the victory, as they should, but it will really mean that democrats need to get their voters out, not necessarily convert independents all over again.

I missed the fine print.

God Bless, and peace!

Don't let Elvis dictate your posts anymore. ;)

Enjoy your dinner.:)

My thoughts? The senate will still be the senate, and the 'peoples' business will still be far removed from their concern. I'm as much anti-incumbent as many here, and come this fall I would like to see some republicans and some democrats tossed out of congress. Some new blood, some true independents, and greens, and libertarians, mixed in. Heck, even a couple of old style fiscal conservatives and a couple of socialists to boot. No majorities or super-majorities. It might just break the gridlock of the 'us vs them' football game style politics of late.
Debate, compromise, consensus.

Naaah...probably just a pipe dream. Huh,hew?
