  •  Massachusetts has a strong libertarian streak. (6+ / 0-)

    Our liberal reputation is based on our strong stands on social issues, not economic ones.  There are a lot of people, especially in the Boston suburbs, who are pro-choice, pro-gay rights, and pro-laissez-faire capitalism.

    Any Republican who runs on that platform has a decent chance of getting elected here, especially in an off-year or special election.  That's how RMoney got elected governor.  Of course, we all know how quickly RMoney tacked hard-right on the social issues.
