Even I have to admit it must have been tough for him.
First Elizabeth Warren becomes the state's first female senator. Not a bad position to be in historically. Poor Scott has the distinction of being the person who, as a Republican, won the senate seat held for so long by Ted Kennedy, only to lose it when his opposition had a pulse.
Because of the changing of the Secretary of State, she then also becomes the senior senator.
Regardless of who gets Kerry's seat (yes, I know its the "people's seat") in the pecking order Ms Warren holds the higher position.
Had things gone differently, that would have been Scott Brown's designation--Senior Senator from the state of Massachusetts. The Kennedy spot.
But as it is, we face another election season. Mr. Brown has a good chance to take the seat provided he sticks with the issues; is honest; is a real bipartisan person; acknowledges that people take these elections seriously and want them treated that way; and avoids the immature snickering and name calling he seemed to favor the last go around.
It would also help if some of his more vocal supporters refrained from projecting their own narrow mindedness onto him and representing him as a mean spirited person with a chip on his shoulder and the attitude that it is about a limited vision of America which ignores the majority for the sake of the party.
