The biggest danger facing Cambridge elitist Elizabeth Warren, the Democrats' celebrity candidate for the U.S. Senate, is that she is turning into Martha Coakley.
Two years ago, Coakley, the attorney general, was the odds-on favorite to run away with the U.S. Senate seat made vacant by the death of Ted Kennedy. She rolled up an impressive victory in the four-way Democratic primary, and it seemed her only problem was picking out her office furniture after she, as expected, squashed Republican Scott Brown, the unknown state senator from Wayland.

He's popular with the unions and the unions run Massachusetts.
Brown may be a RINO, particularly on social issues, but frankly he is the best we will get out of Massachusetts for the foreseeable future.
Warren and the Democrats need to go down in flames...
