Jeff Jacoby: Reclaiming the People’s Seat – The Boston Globe


IT REALLY is the people’s seat, and yesterday the people took it back.

But in electing Scott Brown instead of Martha Coakley to replace the late Ted Kennedy in the US Senate, Massachusetts voters did more than hand the GOP its most improbable and thrilling come-from-behind victory in a generation. They did more than embrace a charismatic, upbeat Republican and reject a dour, gaffe-prone Democrat. And they did more than prove that no political party has a permanent lock on any state’s electoral loyalties.
