MA resident here. I'm relieved. I think she'll make a great senator.

Can't wait to hear Cosmo Brown eat crow. He was such a jackass in all the debates.

Scott Brown was cocky. BYE BYE

Yes! Ditching Georgia for Mass. (I hope!) in 2013. Will be a pleasure to be represented by her instead of the 2 cretins we have down here.

A proud day for Native Americans.

Our latest video was a tribute to Miss Warren!

R9 I'm stuck here in GA w/ all the redneck trash voters too. I'm thrilled Warren won, I donated both to Warren's campaign and McCaskill's. Wishing there was a thread of hope for a democrat resurgency in GA but I know that won't happen anytime soon.

Scott Brown can't go back to nude modelling if he wants to follow in Mitt's tracks and run for president in the future.

What will Brown do next?

by Anonymousreply 1911/06/2012

I think Scott's presidential pipe dreams are over.

by Anonymousreply 2011/06/2012

i hate to ask dumb questions but why was Elizabeth Warren's Senate run so closely watched? Maddow just referred to Brown running a "jock vs nerd" campaign which contributed to his defeat. And I'm aware of the Elizabeth Warren, Native American brouhaha.

Is it just one of the only Senate seats that could actually flip from R to D, or is there another dimension here?

by Anonymousreply 2111/06/2012

R21 - Warren isn't just a Democrat. She's a kick ass consumer protection advocate. She scares the Republicans. And that seat did flip from R to D.

by Anonymousreply 2211/06/2012

So happy for her!!!!!

by Anonymousreply 2311/06/2012

R21, Elizabeth Warren was an advisor to President Obama who championed the Consumer Protection Bureau. There was a strong desire to see her named as a the CPB's first director, but Republicans made it clear that her nomination would be filibustered.

In an unpopular move, Obama side-stepped her for somebody else and Elizabeth went back to Massachusetts. It's seen as vindication that she'd come roaring back and join the body who tried to kill her ascent.

by Anonymousreply 2411/06/2012

Ok MSNBC is comparing her to Moynihan, I get it now.

by Anonymousreply 2511/06/2012

Obama didn't want to sidestep Liz. He couldn't get her past the Repugs. Gave her his full support for the Senate.

by Anonymousreply 2611/06/2012

Scott Brown is at least giving a somewhat gracious concession speech.

by Anonymousreply 2711/06/2012

Well, Scottie, back to showing off your tits!

Hopefully they'll smoke the peace pipe.

Yeah he did -- he bowed to Timmy G.

by Anonymousreply 3011/06/2012

Government is sausage making, r30.

Obama was always in Liz's corner and he pushed to make her Senate run a victory when he couldn't put her through as czar.

Scott Brown is tearing up at the mic.

by Anonymousreply 3211/06/2012

@mviser: I'm going to go on a nice run tomorrow morning," Scott Brown says. Motions to press row, "You guys can chase me around if you can keep up."

by Anonymousreply 3311/06/2012

He tears when I slide my massive tool into him too...he's a pain pig at heart.

Congress is sausage making, R31.

When the leader starts making sausage, you get your Dauchaus and Buchenwalds.

scott brown is saying everything is dysfunctional

Wow, Godwin's Law already, r35? Enjoy your F&F. You misspelled Dachau, too, you pretentious twat.

by Anonymousreply 3711/06/2012

r21, Scott Brown squeaked into Ted Kennedy's senate seat because of a special election after Ted's death.

Brown's democratic opponent assumed she was a shoo-in so basically phoned in her campaign. She had a few gaffes that made it clear she thought she wouldn't have to work hard to win votes. Meanwhile Brown created this whole 'regular guy' persona (pickup truck, barn jacket, good looks) and it worked.

So this was a critical election to find out whether a liberal would 'win back' Kennedy's senate seat.

Tim Kaine won!!!!!! Whoohoo!

R37, r35 didn't make a mistake. He/she pluralized the names of the concentration camps.

Looks like Romney gets North Carolina and Virginia and Obama gets Florida, Ohio, Iowa, and Colorado.

Obama takes Iowa.

Huge victory.

And this gay man is smiling about ALL the women who made great victories tonight. Tammy Baldwin (THE FIRST OPENLY GAY SENATOR!), the fabulous Tammy Duckworth, the tolerable Claire McCaskill, and Maggie Hassan, who will be the only female Democratic governor in the country.

This is a big win. I would really like to see Warren run for party leadership in 2016.

[quote] I would really like to see Warren run for party leadership in 2016.

She better embodies Dem values than those who pushed Obama, and now that the GOP has shot itself in the butt with their social agendas, maybe the Dems can leave triangulation behind.

Elizabeth Warren Wins Massachusetts Senate Race

by Anonymousreply 4811/07/2012

[quote]What will Brown do next?

If Hillary steps down as SOS and Obama appoints John Kerry, chances are that Brown will run for his seat.

Brown is not done yet. Could also come back and run for Governor.

by Anonymousreply 4911/07/2012

Brown lost by EIGHT POINTS. What makes people think he would have a chance of voters wanting him back again?

by Anonymousreply 5011/07/2012

Remember when DL sexists insisted that women would vote for him just because he's goodlooking?


He lost, and he also did worse with female voters than with male voters. Maybe all the Republican men who voted for him are closet cases who drool over his nudie photos...

by Anonymousreply 5111/08/2012

I was surprised by the MARGIN by which Warren won. EIGHT POINTS.

Remember when it was supposed to be a close race where someone would probably only win by 1 or 2 points?

In the final weeks we knew Warren was going to win because she was ahead in 9 out of 10 polls, but most projections had her winning by about 5-6 points.

by Anonymousreply 5211/08/2012

^ Yes, I am surprised (pleasantly surprised) that she did as well as she did. I thought it would be a closer race.

by Anonymousreply 5311/08/2012

Considering the moral fiber of those she opposes, I would make sure her personal security is raised to Presidential levels.
