Scott Brown.

Scott Brown, Massachusetts candidate for U. S. Senate. Go here to learn more.
Dad was a great admirer of John Kennedy. Not so, brother Teddy, who, Dad liked to remind us, had a ringer take one of his exams while attending Harvard. That was long before Chappaquiddick and long before Teddy became an icon of liberalism run amuck.

I think Dad would be rooting for Scott Brown, the conservative candidate for Kennedy's now vacant Senate seat, and who, by some accounts, is within striking distance of defeating his Democratic rival. Here's a link to Brown's stand on the issues and another if you're inclined to contribute to his campaign.

Brown says he'd provide the forty-first vote to stop Obamacare and Cap and Trade by filibuster. That's enough to earn this site's endorsement.

According to Wikipedia,
"He is a 30-year member of the Massachusetts National Guard, where he currently holds the rank of Lt. Colonel in the Judge Advocate General's Corps. Brown was awarded the Army Commendation Medal for meritorious service in homeland security following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.[10] LTC Brown has also completed Airborne school and been awarded the Meritorious Service Medal."
If you live in Massachussetts, vote for him; if not, send some shekels. There's a lot riding on this.
