    While AZ is not MA, Brown is very popular and is the favorite to win any special election.

    Why risk the Senate when you don't have to?   McCain's little gambit has paid off which also pisses me off to no end.

      Because he is the best person to be our NATION's lead diplomat.....it is ONE senate seat. Who we choose to be our lead diplomat has huge effects.......dont be myopic......Obama recognizes who we have in there needs to have the stature of world leadership, the ability to communicate effectively but who has the temperament not to unnecessarily ruffle feathers yet still get our message across......World leders like Kerry they were not big on Rice and thats why Obama did not feel the need to fight for her.

      Brown already lost an election, and it's Massachusetts. Any analysis that automatically declares Scott Brown the favorite is already flawed.
