    Good. I would rather have a Massachusetts Democrat than a RINO any day.

  3. Bayernfan says:

    Maybe he’ll run for governor instead.

  4. Brandon says:

    Time for MITT!

  5. Diogenes says:

    I don’t really want him to run for the special election. He would have to run again right away. I think he bides his time and waits to see where the GOP brand is in 2014 before deciding what race to jump into. He can still jump into the race in 2014.

  6. Tim says:

    I still wonder if something in the private sector kept Brown away.

  7. Bitterlaw says:

    The first time I heard of Scott Brown was because his daughter was on American Idol. She played basketball for Boston College.

  8. RB says:

    Brown should go for Gov. Tesei might give the GOP a shot in a special off year election.

  9. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    Asked why he hadn’t tried running again for Mayor, he said “the people threw me out, now they have to be punished”.

    -I wanted to post this to show what a truly horrible city it was back in those days, although I would not give it up for anything. Every summer, from the time I was 12, working in Downtown NYC, what an incredible place! Every day was different, so full of energy, good and bad!

    Good morning, all.

    Not sure if Weld can replicate his old coalition, especially if Lynch miraculously pulls out the primary. Tisei might have a chance, and perhaps he can win Barney Frank’s vote after having been passed over for Mo. 🙂

    BTW, I see Joe Miller is rearing his head in AK. If Parnell goes in look for Akin, Mourdock, and Jim Demint to quickly move all in for Miller. This will give the purist a chance to ‘send a message’ by resending Bagisch back to DC. Unfortunately Demint and Company don’t understand the power of the gavel or subpoena when you are the opposition party. Hopefully sanity will prevail in AK.

    I respect but am pretty bummed about Scott Brown’s decision not to run for Senate. Small consolation: at least we got rid of John F. Kerry from this state.

  13. Waingro says:

    #11, Tisei would be wise to not to run. He should go after a rematch with Tierney in the primary instead.

    Weld is a possibility, but much of the electorate doesn’t even know who he is anymore. He is VERY old news.

    I could see former Judge, Dan Winslow, a state rep from Scott Brown’s home town in Wrentham, giving it a shot. he would at least be fiery and very good in debates. But his chances would be slim and none.

  14. Waingro says:

    #14, correction on Tisei: “in the midterm instead”

  15. Phil says:

    Another blue senate seat then. Harry Reid is smiling big – and has been since 2006. The senate stays blue in 2014 and for as long as the eye can see.

    Senators Buck, Akin, Mourdock, Angle, and Delaware witch really helped our numbers in the senate. Democrats still laughing their asses off.

    The dumbass party. LOL

    I can understand Scott’s decision (I wish he would have ran), base on the fact it will mean 3 campaigns in 4 years and if he wins the special election, he will have to run again in November 2014, meaning four campaigns in five years.

  17. david says:

    #17, yeah, but they sent a message….To bad the message means having 45 GOP senators rather than 50.
