    is a republican.

    go figure



    Brown outpolls Kerry, Obama - The Boston Globe

    US Senator Scott Brown, who only months ago was a little-known figure even within the tiny band of Republicans in the state Senate, not only catapulted to national stature with his upset US Senate victory, but is today the most popular officeholder in Massachusetts, according to a Boston Globe poll.

    After less than five months in Washington, Brown outpolls such Democratic stalwarts as President Obama and US Senator John F. Kerry in popularity, the poll indicates. He gets high marks not only from Republicans, but even a plurality of Democrats views him favorably

    Good for Brown.
    He has a tough job balancing the liberal views of his constituents with the staunch conservative views of his party. The GOP of today is not too tolerant of the moderate element of its party. It will be interesting to see how Brown pulls it off

    Ditto

    I like Brown. He's his own man and he will vote for whats best for his constituants. I'm sure that won't be the party line in all cases.

    Too bad more don't follow his example

    He might be a good choice for the bottom of the 2012 ticket.

    I was listening to Tom and Todd this morning on WRKO and they mentioned how the Globe had an article putting Charlie Baker in a positive light. Surging out ahead of Duval.

    What is up with the Globe? Are they trying to energize Duval's base?
    Regardless, I'm sure they have something up their sleeve.

    That's no surprise at all. There's Boston and then there's the rest of Massachusetts. It still doesn't negate the fact that Scott Brown is not, and hopefully never will be, your rabid right wing lawmaker such as some of the other just-say-no idiots representing the party on Capital Hill.

    He still needs to face reelection, so if he starts voting with his head instead of listening to the the seasoned choir, he'll be quickly labeled a rino.

    And thats the problem for Brown. Any Republican who does not toe the party line (Rush Limbaugh line) gets labeled a RINO and party funding dries up as well as the attacks from the conservative lynch mob escallates.

    Brown needs to earn his stripes and stake out his reputation. He is wise to avoid the 2012 election as either a President or VP candidate.
    By 2016, the country will be ready for more of a swing to the right. Brown, having established his centrist credentials, will make a formidable candidate
