Waiting for the Vote

The eyes of the nation are on the vote in Massachusetts tonight to replace Teddy Kennedy in the United State Senate. Massachusetts where the American revolution was born. Massachusetts one of the most "blue" states of all. The home of the Kennedy's, Tip O'Neil,John Kerry (who served in Vietnam)and Barney Frank. Will Republican Scott Brown win????????

I don't often quote Chris Matthews but here is a good one:

“I think this is going to be Lexington and Concord, it’s going to be a shot heard round the world. Everybody’s going to know that health care was at stake there because Barney Frank said it better than anybody, ‘It kills health care.’ This means the president has to push the House to pass the Senate bill, go to Maine and try to get one of the two senators there, go to reconciliation. As you and I know very well, there’s no good trade route now for health care if they lose Massachusetts.”
