    Hillary being Senator from New York in 2008.  So does Kirsten Gillibrand.  As for Koch: let's see if they really want to pump money twice in a year's time into Massachusetts, especially for the same candidate.

      even if he wins a special election 2013.

      Even many MA GOPers think Brown would be wise to run for Governor.

        If Brown sets his sights on governor, which he might, the race becomes a lot more winnable. If he runs for Senate, it will be a challenge to beat him in a special election.

          candidate isn't Martha Coakley nor pulls a Coakley taking 20 days vacations off.

          I think we will be good to keep the seat even in a Special election.

          Either way, I plan the volunteer to help the nominee, instead of bitching and whining on how unbeatable Brown is.

            He's not "unbeatable" and nobody's saying he is. At least I'm not. I do think he'll be tougher to beat than you're giving him credit for, at least in another special election.

        If Brown runs for governor instead, which he might, the Senate seat becomes easier to hold. If he runs for Senate it's a challenge.

      President.    There was no harm done.  Think Governor Brewer.  Who made that possible?
