held the seat for nearly half a century.
Democrats needed Coakley to win for a 60th vote to thwart Republican filibusters. Sen elect Brown will become the 41st Republican in the 100-member Senate, which could allow theto block the Democrats and the rest of Obama's agenda.
If this was a referendum on the Democrats Health Care bill and the lack of fulfillment of President Obama's election promises, then I predict change in these upcoming midterm elections. The change will be towards the Republican Party and their more conservative views. Sen Harry Reid, Sen Boxer, Nancy Pelosi and President Obamabest listen to the voting public if they want to keep their jobs after their next election. This should be a clear and loud message to them.
