I’m going to have to add Globe correspondent Tom Keane to my “slow Learners” list.
In his Globe op-ed Keane writes, “Scott Brown undoubtedly had a gloomy Thanksgiving; he had, after all, just lost to Elizabeth Warren. But since then, things have brightened. With John Kerry now President Obama’s nominee for secretary of state, another Senate seat will soon be up for grabs. That by itself is good news for Brown. But it was hardly his only political gift this season. With the Democrats’ strongest candidates staying on the sidelines, Brown is well positioned to win a special election.”
Who is Keane referring to when he mentions the “Democrats strongest candidates?” And, what makes Keane think that the Democrats need particularly strong candidates in a 2013 special US Senate election?
