    Ted Kennedy must be rolling over in his grave. An ex-nude model who owns a truck is now the Republican senator of MA. However, the Democrats share the blame in this upset by backing the weak Martha Coakley.

    I can not believe the physiological warfare that CNN is exhibiting on downplaying this Massachusetts senate race by downplaying the importance of the election. …more B. S .

    His statements about the two lovely girls were absolutely idiotic.

    it should be easy for the senate and the state of Massachusetts to give him a chair at the table.....

    I have only one question for the people of Massachsetts: "So, you want to go back to Eygypt?" So be it. The people with short memories and long toungues have just punched your ticket. Hopefully you won't have to wander in the wilderness for forty years the way the Israelites did.
    God bless Ted Kennedy whose seat was ALWAYS the people's seat...and always showed them the Promised Land- NOT backwards land. God help us!

    Okay, Republicans, Scott Brown won in Massachusetts because he ran on the principles that you as a party drifted away from. Those principles include strong national defense, being fiscally conservative, small government. The American people became really disenchanted with you and rightfully so. You drifted away from these principles. You seem to be getting another chance because the Democrats in Washington appear to be doing the same at the moment. Don't blow it this time around. Remember that this win in Massachusetts wasn't a victory for the RNC, it was a victory for conservative principles. Get back to those principles and lets put some balance back into Washington. One party majority is never good for America whether it be republicans or democrats.

    Republicans and Democrats are no longer governing political parties. They have become nothing more then infantile bullies fighting for their own individual agendas. It is a shame that our
    representatives are so ineffective. Scott Brown will just be another
    bully in the political sandbox and if Martha Coakley won she would
    have been sitting in the same sandbox slinging sand.

    Total repudiation of Obamacare. The American public doesn't want it, Obama. Heed the message!

    People of Mass. wake up!! Voting for brown will not stop democratic party from passing the health care bill. You're giving democrats no option but to pass the senate version of health care bill. Health care will pass before brown takes office and massachuett get what they deserve...loser brown!!! SHAME SHAME

    the congressional democrats blew it, now this is the country's new initial conditions. End the compromise (Liberman) with the right and the special interests and listen to the desires of the American public already.
    this is very sad day for middle class voters.

    Maybe the Democrats will see that the people DON'T want their liberal, extreme left agenda. Maybe, but I kinda' doubt it....

    The League of Women Voters has the number of registered votes in Massacheusetts at 3.9 million and approximately 2.3 million people voted today. The is approximately 58 percent. Thus, approximately 42 percent did not vote; sad with such important issues at stake.

    Marttha Coakely should be ashamed ! She let Ted Kennedy's senate go to a republican ? Apparently she did not know or didn't care about how it important it was...I am disgusted !

    This election doesn't speak for the entire nation. Mass. already has health care reform in their state and I believe one of the lowest #'s of people without health issurance. That hardly speaks for us as a nation. As a nation we spoke out a year ago and we want health care reform. It would be nice if the GOP would actually ingage in forward progress.

    Its really ironic how if this election in particular causes health care reform to fail, it is in major part due to the Senate seat that the man who championed health care reform his entire life once occupied.

    I asked God to put his hand on this election and he surely did. God does not want the demise of the American way "In God We Trust". It is time we sent the Obama, Pelosi Administration the message that they serve the people, not themselves and this Massachusetts election send this message strong and clear. As Reagan stated, "Government is not a solution to our problem, government is the problem". Obama and his crownies are certainly the problem.

    Why didn't CNN broadcast Scott Brown's victory speech? All politics SOME of the time?
