Could Tuesday's Election Be A Sign?

There could be a big shake up tomorrow in Massachusetts and in the U.S. Senate. The fear in Washington D.C. is that Republican Scott Brown will defeat Democrat Martha Coakley in the special election to fill the late Ed Kenney's seat.

Aside from the fact that the Republicans would grow by one number in the Senate, the bigger issue right now is the fact that if Brown wins, the GOP will have enough votes in the Senate to block the final passage of the House-Senate compromise bill on health care.

And as reported in today's Columbus Dispatch, a win in Massachusetts could send a sign to other Democratic Congressmen that if they support the current health care bill, they could be looking for another job after the November election.

It's never dull in the world of politics.
