One of 535 lawmakers in our legislative branch. A junior politician with absolutely no clout in a world where seniority rules the day. The House and the Senate are not mutually exclusive. One Senator does not conjole anyone to do anything, especially junior senators who are literally relegated to the basement of the Russell Senate Office Building.

Sorry I'm from MA and it is the statewide aspect of this race that has me jumpy.

Do you support Warren? Brown? Just curious. What's the general attitude towards Warren in MA?

I support Brown. The reception of Warren here at this time seems a little tepid. I think she has more national support than local but this will probably change as we get closer to the election.

As someone mentioned above, Brown is pretty well liked.

While Brown falls to the left, he is not a stone cold ideologue like warren.

They are statisticallly in a dead heat at this point. She does have more national support right now. A lot of people are not really paying attention to the senate race in Mass yet. It will get more heated as it gets closer. Brown is well liked with a 53% voter rating.

The thing with this race is if Elizabeth Warren wins then its back to what it has been for 50 years of Kennedy, but if Brown wins, that is a Victory for the republicans because it shows a more conservitive swing in Massachusetts, versus the anger fueled vote of 09'
