And it's official...

Martha Coakley has conceded. Scott Brown, a REPUBLICAN will take the US Senate seat held for the past 47 years by Edward Kennedy. The REPUBLICAN gives the REPUBLICANS in the Senate 41 votes, sufficient to sustain a filibuster. Furthermore, the victory for the REPUBLICAN Scott Brown not only makes it virtually impossible for the Democrats to get their modified health care reform bill through the Senate, it makes it exceedingly unlikely that the House of Representatives would be able to pass the bill that the Senate has already passed. This means that the Obamacare health care takeover is very nearly dead.

More analysis tomorrow...
