Political Memo - Massachusetts Election Tests Democrats’ Staying Power - NYTimes.com:
Win or lose in the special election in Massachusetts on Tuesday, nationally, the Democrats are in deep trouble because TeamObama has made promises that the country cannot financially afford to keep.
Looking at the huge support of candidate Scott Brown in the various polls among likely voters, it's clear that middle-of-the-road Americans do not agree with TeamObama's national agenda.
Whether Brown wins or loses in MA, large numbers of voters will have sent a strong message that they are not pleased with the direction left-wing Washington leadership is taking the country.
