  •  Markey will be a great, progressive senator. (6+ / 0-)

    His record speaks for itself.  Now he needs to campaign like hell because his opponent may have alot of $ from the most regressive forces in the US.  All Markey need s to do is get a magaphone and tell the people what he has done which is full of popular substance and then ask Mr. Got Bucks GOP candidate to respond.  Winner Markey, hands down.

    •  Indeed, it's back to basics. (5+ / 0-)

      I was handed a postcard by a Markey canvasser last week and it told about his stances on gun control, pro-choice, etc.; all important issues but not a word about the economy, jobs, or the concentration of wealth.  

      As for Gomez having appeal in the Latino community, this is understandable, but it would be condescending to say "Latinos will vote for Latinos".  I'm an Italian-American and I wouldn't vote for Rudy Giuliani or Rick Santorum, maybe not even for Andrew Cuomo if he runs for President.

      •  Yeah, and I'm a Mormon (0+ / 0-)

        And I certainly didn't vote for Romney. Or Huntsman. Or even Rocky Anderson (who's technically still Mormon, but not active). I may be a Mormon-American, but I vote for the most progressive, competent candidate. I dislike tribalism.

        •  Were you being ironic in (0+ / 0-)

          your statement that as a Mormon-American, you dislike tribalism?  The Mormons are nothing if not tribal.  Sorry, but I used to be one and live surrounded by them so I know a little about that.

          •  I live surrounded by them too (0+ / 0-)

            Though I'm an active (though leftist) Mormon, so it might affect my perception of things. Then again, I was just talking about myself, not all Mormons. I'm anti-tribalist enough that I didn't even vote for Obama, though all the Mormon Dems I know were cheering him on. And I'm not a registered Democrat (which most Mormon Dems are).

          •  Not so tribe that they could not put up a (0+ / 0-)

            man for presidential title,  the Trible Leader of the Western World.  

      •  I am also an Itatian and agree with you on the (0+ / 0-)

        list, but not the Cuomo negative.  We may need a tougher player next time and that includes, "Walk Into The Presidency", Clinton,  We certainly have had  enough of the softball pitcher type.
