Coocoo for Brown

In a recent interview, Senator-elect Scott Brown, despite admitting that he was "humbled" by talk of him seeking the Republican presidential nomination in 2012, refused to rule out the prospect.

HE may not have ruled it out, but as the experiences of Republican presidential aspirants from Tom Ridge to Rudy Giuliani should make very clear, it HAS been ruled out for him nonetheless. The reason for this is simple - Scott Brown, whatever else he may believe, is pro-choice. In the world of contemporary GOP politics, that renders him unviable as potential presidential timber (heck, it even played a key role in Joe Lieberman's being disregarded as vice presidential timber when John McCain contemplated picking him in 2008).

Just an observation.
