I was listening to analysts on the radio this morning discussing the Congressional races, and they were praising the ‘clout’ of our very senior delegation along with the strong likelihood that the control of the House would go to the Democrats.
Soooo…where’s the clout?
As notorious members of the minority party, I would submit that our delegation would exude ANTI-clout, as symbols of what caused the country to change control of Congress.
Massachusetts was, until the election of Scott Brown, one of the few single-party delegations in Congress. In a sharply divided institution, we would be wise to have members of BOTH parties representing our interests in BOTH Houses of congress.
So vote GOP for self-interest, not just because it’s the right thing to do!
