Elizabeth Warren, whose potential Senate candidacy has piqued national interest, began a “listening tour’’ this week, convening a set of invitation-only events where she has shown her fiery side to small groups of friendly Democratic activists desperate to defeat Republican Scott Brown

SO dear Massachusetters, does she have any chance in dethroning the sitting Republican Senator, Scott Brown?

@tsarstepan,
Could Elizabeth Warren beat Scott Brown?

i'm not sure what either of them look like, but the most brutal fight i ever saw was a girl fight, lots of kicking, scratching, and some amazing punches (the loser had to stay home from school for almost a week until swelling went down around her eyes)

so i'm gonna say yes

I'm thinking in terms of the Democratic Party getting one more Senate seat. In Massachusetts, it would seem a lot easier task then in other Senate races.

@tsarstepan,
I'm thinking the best thing to do is keep the few moderate Republicans we have right where they are. He may vote along party lines for most things but he's reasonable when it comes to representing a liberal-leaning constituency.

@tsarstepan,
Don't know, but it sounds like a real bellweather contest, doesn't it? It would have made for some really great off year contest.

As it now stands:
Democratic senators, 51
Independent senators, 2
Vs.
Republican senators, 47.

Plus 1 for the Democratic side is a good thing.

The bigger problem is that the guy is an idiot. Literally dumb.

@Cycloptichorn,
Did he sign the Republican no new taxes manifesto or is that only a House of Representative thing?

@Cycloptichorn,
Care to explain why you think he is an idiot?

He did beat Martha Coakley rather convincingly. He served as a State Senator for several years. He even voted for several Dem bills.

Coakley was a bad candidate who ran a terrible campaign - I'll hunt around for a great article I read a year ago outlining the tremendous mistakes she made.

As for Brown, he has a difficult time answering questions about policy in a cogent fashion. I have seen him on several occasions give answers which show that he has no real understanding of the underlying issue at all, and several which are really just embarrassing.

Sounds like many politicians. Liston to Debbie Wasserman lately???

Maybe it is his accent you can't understand.

@tsarstepan,
I don't think Elizabeth Warren should run for senate. I think she should run for president.

DWS ain't a genius, but Brown makes her look like one.
