    The State that killed health care! Uncaring people, Fox will be proud of you. You have disgraced all that Senator Kennedy worked so hard to achieve. I know what State I will never set foot in. Shame Shame Shame. Forgive them for they know not what they do.

    120,000 vote win is beyond the 1/2% margin for a recount!!!!

    Senator Kennedy must have disappointment in that result as he is seeing from heaven.

    As a Democrat, I am very unhappy that people don't vote their interest because they are lazy or discourage about the value of their vote.
    McCain got 1.1 Million votes and Brown got 1.1 Million votes. Obama got 1.9 Million votes and Coakley got 1.0 Million votes. Thus, 900,000 voters for Obama did not vote in this election.

    The stock market will like this result but the fallout of not being able to break gridlock will mean a very bad year for the economy and ultimately the market. Thus, Obama may be a one term President because he will be blamed for the results that Republicans created and want to extend for the sake of libertarian beliefs. However, Republicans may get so excited that their greed for power will erupt into internal fights that cause Democrats to vote.

    To ALL politicians: If you vote for the health care bill, if you continue crazy spending, or if you don't listen to your district, you're next.

    1) I cannot express how disappointed I am in MA. I am from MA, but not this MA.
    2) I am sad for America that God has decided to blind the eyes of those who should have seen how bad Brown is, and didn't.
    3) I am shocked to think of how bad the situation in this country must get before Americans will reject the Repubican Party for more than one year.

    When GB was elected, I said to myself, "they will learn from this and change." All I can say is, America and MA will learn from this disaster as well.

    Even with all the machininations, no exit polls to demoralize the liberals, the never-ending spin pre-election by all pundits, the people finally spoke....Spin on, revise history, this is just the beginning of the wave...Time to force them all out, both parties, the old school, wipe the hard drive, re-install the operating system, the Constitution, as with a computer, the system can be so corrupted, the only way to cure all the ills is to re-load, and start from the beginning......

    The people that vote for GOP will always vote for them, they don't care if they will put us back into the grave and this unbeliverable.

    What a difference a year makes! I bet oprah's crying again, and chris matthews fells a tingle in his leg again, but not for the same reasons.

    I wanted the President to really be able to come out strong and not even try to fix the problems that resulted from the Bush Admin. Just so people could see the reason America needed a change. See now that he has come in and fixed stuff America is right back on the FLIP FLOP, next time it gets screwed up some should really be made to get the point and suffer your losses even if it continues somehow includes me as one of those other Americans.

    and all we heard since Obama's coronation was that the GOP was dead. try again. and the pendulum has again............ Those who don't know history are doomed to repeat it.

    ahahahaha, Americans are so stupid, get another Republican majority so you can finalize your decent to third world status. Independent Voter = to dumb to vote. The Republicans have fooled you all again, Tax Breaks, and no health care is your future.

    which political party is dead?

    This is what the democrats get for compromising on the Public Option. Mandatory purchase of health insurance combined with a lack of the Public Option is a health care bill written by the insurance companies for the insurance companies. And maybe big pharma too. No wonder Brown won.

    Thank heaven some sanity has been returned to the political process. The Dems now have an opportunity to step up to the plate and really do what they should, stop trying to ram this monster of a bill down the throat of the American public and grow up and play nice with all the members elected to office by the "people". Mr. Reid and Ms. Palosi, you too can be voted out of office. Mr. Obama and the Chicago crew need to know that the rest of the country will not put up with dirty deals.

    When you go into bankruptcy due to medical bills be sure to thank the good people of Massachusetts. I guess you could ask the Tea Baggers for help.

    People want change until change comes, then they run scared because they are cowards.

    Thank you Massachusetts, thanks for destroying our future.
