As predicted, Senator Scott "Treasure Trail" Brown broke with his party early to help Democrats pass an important bill.
So begins his seesaw ride. He's shown he's not afraid to buck the right wing, but now he has to win back the conservative activists who elected him. And then he'll have to vote like a Democrat again when he remembers he's from Massachusetts. And then back. And forth. And up. And down.
I still think he's toast in 2012.
