Can Scott Brown win in Massachusetts?
Or does Martha Coakley have it in the bag?
I think it's possible because of a few reasons:
1) Typically low turnout in special elections
2) Republicans vote in higher percentages during special elections
3) Since there is so much anti-health care, anti-cap and trade, anti-socialism rhetoric, more Republicans will vote
Can you imagine if a Republican wins in MA? It would make world headlines.
Unfortunately, living in MA, the newspapers have been essentially silent. And if not, most every article about the election, while attempting to be non-biased, shows only a picture of Coakley.
If a Republican won, it would be such a breath of fresh air only because the Independents (me) and Republicans would actually feel as though their Presidential votes may actually matter. It would change the entire political landscape.
I believe Scott Brown can win in Massachusetts because of the hard economic times alot of people are having there. People voted for the Kennedy's no matter what and for the most part they did some good but it is time for change

I am not an American, but what goes on in the USA is important to the world.Lincoln was a Republican and freed the slaves. One would expect black Americans to generally vote Republican. But they don't.How did this come about?

I read this was true and I just have to know if it is, please! Please provide links to prove what you say. Surely we are not going to be aborting babies ready to come into the world fully developed and healthy?

Maybe. The 17th Century term High Crimes and Misdemeanors may not mean what you think it might be after seeing President Clinton impeached, but not convicted. A common interpretation is as follows:The charge of high crimes and misdemeanors covers allegations of misconduct peculiar...
