TELL US: What Should Scott Brown Do Next?

U.S. Senator Scott Brown will leave office in January. What should he do next?


U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, a Republican, was defeated Tuesday by first time candidate Elizabeth Warren, a Democrat.

Warren will take office as the state's junior senator in January.

She'll replace Brown, who was elected in a special election in January 2010 when he defeated Democrat Martha Coakley.

In his concession speech on Tuesday night, Brown told his supporters that "defeat is only temporary."

As soon as the race was called, analysts began suggesting Brown may run for Massachusetts governor in 2014 or would seek the state's other U.S. Senate seat if Senator John Kerry is named Secretary of State under President Barack Obama in his second term.

What should Brown do next? Tell us in the comments.

I also think he could clerk for Scalia but he might be closer in intellect to Justice Thomas. Joe Bergin Cambridge, ma

“Politicians and diapers must be changed often, and for the same reason.” ― Mark Twain. Power corrupts; as humans try to hold it, they become more corrupt. This is uncontestable fact, proven throughout history. After one term, Brown and all politicians must be leave Washington and work in the economy that they were elected to protect. Banks, corporations and the wealthiest 1/10th of 1% own Washington; this heinously corrupt Plutocracy has funded the creation of laws favoring themselves and the ever increasing salaries, benefits and perks and a lifetime welfare program for politicians and their friends and families; when they serve only one term, they collect all their salary, benefits and perks for their entire life. Taxpayer money is embezzled to gift their children into advantage and Ivy League. Universities have increased tuition beyond even gigantic healthcare costs. They and Media are part of the corrupt system that augments and reinforces the delusional misperceptions and self-importance of the courts, military industrial complex and Washington. Lobbying must be made illegal with unavoidable general population prison time for the lobbyist and every member of the board of the sponsor. It’s a parasitic, unethically compensated and gifted career; it prostitutes itself to the highest bidders, and is nothing more than a black market buying politicians and favor and manipulating them into choices that facilitate the rape, terrorism and forced feudalism of the 99%.

I'll gladly ride this train. You rock. Can we add campaign reform to the list? How's this: Limit campaigns to about six weeks, grant each candidate one hour of TV time per week to talk policy to the voters, eliminate all paid political adverstising; eliminate all third-party donations to political campaigns. It's a start.

This is tiresome. Warren made up every facet of her career for her "Native American" heritage and "first breast feeding mom to take the bar exam". Evrything she has said has been disproved and she has offered nothing in defense of hearsay ion her part. If she is so brilliant why doesn't she come clean - maybe she can't!
