Herald poll currently (Dem candidates only I guess)
Who do you think will take on U.S. Sen. Scott Brown?

10% - Robert Pozen

28% - Vicki Kennedy

27% - Mike Capuano

2% - Alan Khazei

17% - Stephen Lynch

7% - Barney Frank

4% - Therese Murray

4% - Setti Warren

Khazei and Capuano were candidates in last yr’s Dem primary, along with Celtics co-owner Steve Pagliuca, who spent the most and finished last. Coakley of course got the nomination.

Who would face Brown in a poss. Republican primary?
Jeff Perry? (ran for 10th & lost, scandal in past)
If a more conservative candidate could be found,
would they survive the final? This is Massachusetts.

One comment to article said that it doesn’t matter who runs against Brown—if they have a D next to their name, they will win.

Another comment from Kathyf (note: Brown was on Howie Carr’s
show last night and defended himself, saying “do you want someone with you 80 per cent of the time or 0 per cent of the time?”)

Kathyf’s comment:
“For those conservatives who say they are disappointed with Brown, have you forgotten:

1. His refusal to go along with pro-amnesty DREAM Act
2. Vote against Elena Kagan
3. Pledge not to sponsor earmarks
4. Opposition to the $1.2 trillion spending bill, which helped kill it
5. Vote against Obama’s nomination of a radical SEIU lawyer for NLRB
6. Opposition to cap and trade (thereby dooming it)
7. His bill to strip home-grown terrorists of their citizenship
8. His vote to extend the Bush tax cuts (don’t forget, 8 of our 10 whacky Dem congressmen voted against the tax cut, even when it was sweetened with an extension of unemployment benefits).
9. His bill to tighten sanctions on Iran until they give up their nuclear weapons program
10. His attack on Harvard elitists for their refusal to allow ROTC on campus

“Brown is a good conservative. Does he vote with Republicans all the time? No, sometimes he will vote off, but he said when he ran for US Senate that he was not going to march in lockstep with either party, and he hasn’t.” (end of Kathyf’s comment. I will add that anti-Brown forces ran an ad just before the election saying “Who is Scott Brown, really? A Republican. Who will vote in lockstep with the Republican party”. They were wrong, as he has sometimes voted with Democrats...but take note that he has not voted in lockstep with the Dems, that’s for sure.

How would Coakley have voted on these issues?)

"But Pozen’s biggest asset in a race against Brown can be summed up in one word: money."

Money might not the big issue, because Scott Brown isn't going to see a stinking dime from Tea Party advocates this time around!
