Unless you have had your head under a rock, you know Scott Brown is the winning candidate for the senate seat of Massachusetts, and in case you really are one of those people that have had their head under a rock, the seat was previously held by Ted Kennedy for 30something yrs who was a Democrat and Scott Brown is a Republican.
Which brings me to my point…
Did the Dems wake up this morning and say “Oh its all Coakley’s fault, lets still move ahead” as one of Obama’s top aides suggested yesterday by saying “Campaigns and candidates matter.” or did they wake up and say “Perhaps we should take a good long hard look at ourselves in the mirror and “change” the way we have been running things?”
Or as White House senior adviser David Axelrod told POLITICO: “I think that it would a terrible mistake to walk away now. If we don’t pass the bill, all we have is the stigma of a caricature that was put on it. That would be the worst result for everybody who has supported this bill.” He said the administration will work with Capitol Hill to figure out how and even Obama’s former campaign manger, David Plouffe, added on ABC’s “Good Morning America”: “I’m very confident we can pass health-care reform.”
But on the flip side of all of this, why the Republicans are basking in the glory (Holy crap we have someone on our side that has charisma, is young and can make jokes), do they understand that perhaps Scott Brown was elected because he is not a true Republican, in fact he began the race as an independent and then switched to a republican ticket and that most Republicans don’t want someone who is ‘conservative’, but someone who is fiscally conservative and socially liberal….as I’m sure most Democrats do as well. I think the election results considering Obama took the state by 26 points shows that people care really more about the Libertarian, not the Republican or the Democrat.
But the question is: Will either side see it or continue to run the same way as they both have been for years?
