  •  Listen: Brown will win Kerry's seat. Easily. (8+ / 0-)

    I'm a longtime Boston resident and I'm telling you, it won't even be close. This is a terrible idea. We need the Senate seat more than we need Kerry as SoS.

    It'll be a special election--there'll be no Presidential race coattails. All the Brown voters will still be motivated to vote for him again, while it'll be a struggle to bring out enough Dems. And many folks who voted for Warren consider Brown "likeable" and a "good guy" and will be happy to have a chance to give Brown his job back. It'll make these voters feel good.

    It'll be a landslide. What a waste. Frankly I don't give a shit about Kerry's "career" or "ambition." The people of MA hired him for an important job--to represent them for a term as their Senator. Call me old-fashioned or naive (and I'm sure some Kossacks will) but he made a committment to the people of MA that he should keep.
