Scott Brown could put his left over campaign paraphernalia to good use
President Obama may has just given the GOP an early Christmas present if reports coming out in reliable mainstream media are true, that Massachusetts Senator John Kerry will become the next Secretary of State.
Yes, Governor Patrick could stack the deck somewhat by appointing a real contender to occupy Kerry's senate seat rather than just a warm body term-limited to the day of the special election, as was done when Senator Kennedy died.
And look how well that turned out for the democratic party.
When it comes to special elections, Scott Brown has already accomplished the unthinkable -- snatching the throne occupied by a political deity for almost fifty years.
Obviously in his recent farewell address, Scott Brown all but announced a return to the campaign trail: "Depending on what happens, and where we go, all of us, we may obviously meet again."
A lot sooner than most democrats expected, obviously.
