60. This should have been a runaway.
I still doubt that Brown will actually win, but even if he makes it close it's a bad omen for November. Some people want to practice wishful thinking and put their heads in the sand and continue to believe that everything is OK with the Dem majority. Those people do that at their own peril. A few months before the 1994 election it was considered unthinkable that the GOP could take Congress. Even they didn't think they could. But we all know what happened.

The time is now to jettison the DLC types and traitor Joe and the rest and move back toward the progressive ideals that Obama ran on. I don't think it's too late, but if the Dems continue to fuck around it soon might be.
