Its not a good idea to shoot yourself in the foot. Brown is a corporate whore also - much more of one than Coakley. Many progressives are mad that the process is not moving forward fast enough. But if you think voting in regressives is a good idea - you are very wrong. We did that with Carter - everyone was upset because he didn't move fast enough and was surrounded by corporate people. The result was Reagan and the 30 year decline of the middle class.
