    Default The peoples seat - Massachusetts

    Scott Brown is running for the senate in Massachusetts. This exchange was great. He really left David Gergen sputtering. I expect he was looking for a Dan Quayle/Lloyd Bentsen debate moment. What he got was pretty much a Sister Souljah moment.

    Gergen might have just given the election to Brown

    Those from Massachusetts appear to have a choice.

    Wouldn't it be ironic if Ted Kennedy's old seat becomes the vote that defeats Nationalized Socialized Healthcare!!

    After all, it was his lifelong dream!!

    We can tap our ruby slippers, rub out rabbit feet and have the Dali Lama himself pray for our cause and there ain't no way that a Republican is going to pick up that seat.

    You know that, and I know that, BUT BUT BUT...isn't it fun to dream? Can you imagine the tsunami that would develope? After watching that debate, I thought he hit a home run. It was indeed about as satisfying as watching the Reagan/Carter debate.

    I agree. It was just a good moment and worth watching.

    But...they have elected republican governors before. reminds me of the dumb and dumber line when Jim Carey...

    I'm from Ma. and I think it will be very close... If we really want to send a message of change to DC then replacing Teddy with a R would send that message loud and clear. 2 votes from this household ... Jim

    From Rasmussen today:

    "A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in the state finds Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley attracting 49% of the vote while her Republican rival, state Senator Scott Brown, picks up 47%. "


    Yesterday alone, Brown raised over $1.3 MILLION in an online fundraising campaign.

    Brown support has be steadily increasing from being down double digits just a few weeks ago. He has some substantial momentum. This one is shaping up to be much closer than most anyone ever imagined.

    Bob/Jim

    It should be an interesting few days. I think I will listen to Howie Carr for the next few days. He should have plenty to say.

    That "it's the peoples seat" was a great line wasn't it?
