    Let me know which party you're more concerned for after Tuesday's election in MA. You remember MA, thats where the dems have a 5:1 voter registration edge.

    I'm not concerned with either party, to tell you the truth. Both have left me disappointed and disillusioned. I have been a registered Republican my whole life, but for the last fifteen or twenty years now that has been for the sake of primaries more than anything else. I have cast my votes for people of many different political ideologies.

    That being said, I do like Scott Brown and hope he can pull out the win. Even if he doesn't, I think what's happening in Massachusetts is good.

    It's big because one of the Dems that's responsible for the financial crisis is leaving.

    Meh, I've lost track.

    Perhaps the districts the Dems are vacating are more vulnerable to a shake up than the Repub. districts? Just a thought, I really don't know.

    Though I do think there is as underlying idea that the Deomcrat candidates are bailing on Obama more than retiring.

    That's good. The longer Republicans stay in office, the more they become like Democrats.
