How quickly the icons change

New Mass. Senator Scott Brown was a hero just a month ago (with the moderate Brown even getting star treatment at CPAC,) but in his first major vote, he votes with the Dems on a stripped down jobs bill....

On the other hand, he just saved himself from making all those joint appearances at the fundraisers....


  • Brown might have been "allowed" to make this vote so the Repubs can claim they support jobs (even if 90% of them voted against it.) This bill is chump change and affect no big corporate donors.

  • I get your point. We don't know the level of leadership pressure.

    Plus, with the televised healthcare forum coming up, they might have wanted to be able to say "we can work with the Dems, but certainly not on this healthcare bill!"

    I hadn't seen it that way til your comment.

  • ...but, this will damage his undeserved national standing.

  • Maybe. Or he could be the new McCain. And I don't mean that as a compliment.

  • But the environment is so different than when McCain got his rep.

    I think he takes more of the heat like an Olympia Snowe.
