Opening Arguments

Mission accomplished!

OK, folks, back to the center

In a victory few thought possible just a month ago, Republican Scott Brown defeated Democrat Martha Coakley Tuesday in the race for the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by Ted Kennedy -- a win that could grind President Obama's agenda to a halt and portend huge losses for Democrats in the November midterms.

On the other hand, maybe not. A lot of politicians, including Bill Clinton in his first term, saw some negative signs and adjusted. Barack Obama seems not inclined to follow their example. Word is he will "double down" on his agenda, especially health care.

Buckle in, Evan. Gonna be a bumpy ride
