“Depending on what happens and where we go, all of us, we may obviously meet again,” he said, “but I’m looking forward to continuing on with those friendships, with continuing on working with my staff.”

Gonna work with them on their war-whoops and tomahawk chops, Scotty?

On the Senate floor today fake-bi-partisan Scott Brown (R-Wall Street) made a sappy farewell speech, in which he dropped heavy hints he wants back in.

“victory and defeat is temporary,” Scotty? Please, please O! God! Please! run again here in Massachusetts. Run for Governor, please. Run for John Kerry's seat if it opens up, please. It would be so enjoyable to watch you get your arrogant ass get "temporarily" beaten again.

Scott Brown? He's not a Senator. Just look at him.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  he could probably get elected governor (0+ / 0-)

    Not sure if that's something he would want but his career in the senate is over.  Not likely they would send him back as long as he is a republican.
    To be honest if he wants a future is Ma he should just change parties eventually,republican is a dirty word in Ma.

    Brown will almost certainly run again.  And he has a good chance of winning a special election (in which too many Democrats stay home in their "safe blue" state).  

    SO I wouldn't count him out. Unfortunately.

    By the way it's pretty ironic that we changed the law for replacing Senators when Kerry was running for President, and Mitt Romney was governor.  Because no one trusted Romney (with good reason) not to appoint a Republican to take his place even though the state is overwhelmingly Democratic.

    That's is how Brown won the first time.  If we were to win again, that would be TWICE that Kerry (and the short-sighted decision in 2004) cost MA Dems a Senate seat.

    the private sector and chooses to spare himself and his family the agony of another statewide run.

    And I disagree with people who speak of Brown's win against his special-election opponent Martha Coakley. It wasn't simply a matter of low Democratic voter turnout, as Looty suggests, nor did Brown "win" the election.  Coakley lost it with a lazy, arrogant, and misguided campaign.  Unfortunately, Coakley's incompetence, and the fact that not one Democrat at the national level bothered to pay attention to what was happening in MA, let Brown step on to the national stage.

    As for Brown's political future, I think there's a chance he could make a comeback, but, again, it doesn't have anything to do with whether or not Democrats turn out to vote against Brown.  Instead, it isn't clear that there's a Democrat willing to run for Governor or the Senate who has the kind of name recognition and statewide organization that Brown now does.  This will be a problem for the Democrats.

    But I personally hope I never have to see or hear Brown ever again.

    •  I agree with you wholheartedly ... (0+ / 0-)

      Chokely was a disaster and she should never be forgiven for her lousey campaign. Brown could win again if someone big did not step up (it would be too much to ask for but, Barney Frank?). Brown would have the name recognition is a short election but if he lost he'd be gone forever. I can't say I love John Kerry from a personality standpoint but I hope he stays a senator for a long time to come.
