      special challenger.  Capuano & Markey are not so unique.  

      Sorry, it's just not true that Brown is weak.  He's quite well liked by many who should know better.  

      •  Agree. Special election turnout low and more (3+ / 0-)

        Republican than Presidential year or even 'off" yr lik 2010, I bet.

        There is not star (except our Gov) that I can see that can beat Brown especially in that electorate.

        People are worn out by this last slug fest. I think non ardent Dems might stay home and the Reps would all turn out to vindicate Brown give him a win.

        Dems need to listen to us when we give them the nuances if they aren't here in MA...at least take it into account. Sure we might be wrong but we do have, quite simply, more detailed data about the electorate and the reception of candidates than they do.

      please defer a bit more respectfully to those who are on the ground and were throughout the election cycle. We have more data to base our opinion on. It isn't theoretically. I report what I see.

      We can't argue if we have a different sense of what happened in the election. I can't know the granularity of what went on with Sharrod Brown's reelection either and I would not argue with people who were from there and were reporting what was going on with the people.

      if you are here it's a different thing.
