    Great comment, BBM.

    I was a bit less skeptical than you, but was still worried -- especially about whether a woman could win against Brown in this very parochial state -- and whether Elizabeth had what it took to do retail politics well. Indeed there were bumps in the beginning, but holy cow is she a fast learner, on the fly even! And yeah she kicked his ass -- how satisfying that still feels -- although I wanted a double digit beatdown, missed it by 2 points, natch LOL. Yeah, I'm greedy :-)

    So proud she's our Senator.

      oratory.  We got that with Obama and where has it lead?

      We want plain and forceful statement of some political truth.  We want effective and Liz is delivering.

      More power to her.  She's on my short list of pols I care about any more - Eliz Warren, Tim Kaine from Virginia, Tammy Baldwin from Wisconsin, Chris Van Hollen from Maryland.  And that's about it.  

      The elevation of appearance over substance, of celebrity over character, of short term gains over lasting achievement displays a poverty of ambition. It distracts you from what's truly important. - Barack Obama
