SCOTT BROWN  FOR 2012? His victory speech was a damn fine one (here's the full text). He showed a lot of class remembering Ted Kennedy, even though his legacy (healthcare reform) is one of the first things he's going to vote against. In all, a well delivered, classy speech.

I wonder how long will it be until many start seriously calling him for 2012 GOP candidate. After all, he's exactly where Obama was in 2006, isn't it? (in fact with 10 months more experience, since this was a special election and not the November midterms). And it doesn't seem to be anyone pulling ahead among the potential candidates. At least this guy pulled off a major victory against all odds; the problem is that, after criticizing Obama's lack of experience, the GOP may find difficult to defend doing the same.
