Senators are supposed to live in Washington

Scott Brown and Ed Markey seem to be mixed up about what house they serve in. Representatives are expected to stay closely in touch with their local constituents and serve their concerns first, while Senators are expected to put their state’s interests aside and serve the national interests. Senators aren’t supposed to be on the plane every weekend. Markey has…

(Worth discussing. – promoted by Paul R. Ferro) The notion that Scott Brown lost this election because he went too far in the middle is one of the dumber arguments of the 2012 post mortems I’ve seen and heard so far.
