5. You know, I'd almost agree if it wasn't for the fact that Brown
was the better candidate with the proven track record of something we DUers find important: "Liberalism".

Paul Hackett frightened me not because of his grassroots effort but because outside of his stance on war which we all jumped on the Hackett bandwagon for, we knew nothing about this guy. And yet no one seems to flinch when the read about the comments he made about immigration which borders on the lunatic far-right. If the only candidate I had to vote for in the primaries was pro-choice, pro-environment, anti-war and anti-patriot act and had the voting record to back that up - then this is good.

I'd rather have a candidate who's record I know and I'm comfortable with like Browns, then an unknown who happens to give DUers wet dreams on one issues but could turn out to be republican like his voter registration up until few years ago.
