  •  Kerry should stay in the Senate until 2014 (6+ / 0-)

    when his term runs out.

    Filibuster reform now. No more Gentleman's agreements.

      There are still way, way too many people here in MA that like Scott Brown so they would be willing to hand him the seat as a consolation prize in a special election. There are many parts of MA that a purple and red and have no issue crossing party lines to vote for a candidate that they like.

      I know that it's kind of unthinkable about such a blue state but the MA Democratic political machine isn't exactly churning out great candidates that can effectively compete on a state-wide level. The only two that I can think of that might have a shot are Joe Kennedy II (former House Rep) and Nikki Tsongas (current House Rep and wife of the late Sen. Paul Tsongas). Massachusetts seems to have a real deficit of viable Democratic candidates.

    •  Or 2020. He's great in the Senate. Should stay. (2+ / 0-)

      Howard Dean should be at the DNC.

      Have I gotten over 2004, yet?  No.

      Happy little moron, Lucky little man.
