Brown Wins with Class

While listening to Scott Browns acceptance speech, I could see what the people of Massachusetts saw in him.

I especially liked what he said about Ted Kennedy.

His words

"This special election came about because we lost someone very dear to Massachusetts, and to America. Senator Ted Kennedy was a tireless and big-hearted public servant, and for most of my lifetime was a force like no other in this state. His name will always command the affection and respect by the people of Massachusetts, and the same goes for his wife Vicki. There's no replacing a man like that, but tonight I honor his memory, and I pledge my very best to be a worthy successor."

The irony tonight was unmistakable, with a GOP successor not only taking the seat long held by Kennedy, but also possibly being the deciding vote to kill Health Reform.

With that said, Brown did a noble thing recognizing the fallen public servant.
