As history points out MA was the birthplace of America and now they have the opportunity to to begin a re-birth of America. Now is the time that all Americans put back in place the type of "representation" that our forefathers intended. Not the corupt, elitist politicians who now occupy most of our government. Scott's comment that it is "the peoples seat" it does not belong to the democratic party or Ted Kennedy shows his reverence to what his responsibility is. I am proud of all Americans taking a stand to insure our freedom and hold special respect for all those in MA "standing up". Keep up the fight, we Americans can and will take back "our" country.
