On some level, wouldn't the Democrats in Congress breathe a huge sigh of relief if Scott Brown managed to win this special election? They can say they tried but, gosh darn it, the Republicans blocked us! They'd be off the hook with their liberal constituents for failing to get health care reform while assuaging centrist voters who never wanted it in the first place.
It's a win-win! C'mon, Democrats, show your support for Scott Brown!
