(CBS News) - In many parts of the country, Republican candidates are running against President Obama, even if he's not technically the Democratic opponent on the ballot. But in Massachusetts, Republican Sen. Scott Brown is touting his work with the president to convince voters to give him a second term.
The Republican incumbent, who won the seat in a 2010 special election following longtime Sen. Ted Kennedy's death, delivered a speech at Bunker Hill Community College in Charlestown this afternoon highlighting his efforts to shepherd through bills with bipartisan support in the Senate, and the need for members of both parties to work together. He also touted his willingness to appear alongside the president to celebrate a "shared accomplishment."
"A few people told me that maybe it wouldn't be such a good idea to go to the signing ceremony at the White House," he said, of the portion of Mr. Obama's jobs package that eventually did pass, according to prepared remarks released by his campaign. "But when the invitation came, I answered 'yes' right away. Of course I wanted to be there to see a commonsense idea become law. That law wouldn't be any better or worse if it were a Republican president signing it. There's such a thing as shared accomplishment, and in my book it sure beats sharing the blame for doing nothing at all."

GTH Scott Brown
My prediction is that no matter how the presidential election turns out, or Scott Brown's own election, he will be the next Repub to flip over to the demoRAT side, which is where his values & ideology are in the first place.
I wouldn’t bet against your prediction. Well said.
Scott Brown = Romney Jr.
