    Unlike Kennedy, who died, Kerry will be around to campaign with whoever runs. That's who will win.

    Brown blew his cover with this campaign - especially with his idiotic harping on Warren being a professor. Guess what? people in MA are educated and appreciate education and educators. He had his day in the sun, he may now return to the shadowy space under his neanderthal rock.

    •  Some people in MA are educated. Many are not. (0+ / 0-)

      Why do people from outside MA think it's so easy here for Dems?  We were lucky to have Kennedy, who was a spectacular campaigner and fighter.  As was Warren this year.

      How to say this without using a slur?...we have as many low-info Fox-watching resentful anti-intellectual afraid-of-change I-want-mine-and-yours-too jerks as anywhere.

        But I lived most of my life in MA. My family is spread across the state from the Springfield area to the North Shore and everywhere in between.  

        I spent most of my life in a democratic household, located in a republican stronghold, supporting and stuffing envelopes for democratic candidates.

        The largest republican voting population in MA are wealthy greedheads, followed by lower-middle class fox-watchers/bigots in places like Southie and northern Worcester county.  

        But the wealthy ones, which are the majority, value education. Being anti-education simply is not a winning strategy in MA. It can cement the support of the small chunk of education-free low-income bigots, but it doesn't resonate in places like Andover, or Wellesley - certainly not enough to draw borderline voters to the "R" cam,  or encourage turnout among uninterested Rs.

    •  I don't think so...he'd be in the confirmation (2+ / 0-)

      process as SecDef or SecState and they do not campaign.
