Brown Is To The Left Of Snowe? Ctd

Yglesias looks at Brown's record and wonders what sort of Senator he will be:

The evidence from state of the art political science is that Brown’s voting record as a state legislator is actually incredibly liberal for a Republican.
But his campaign didn’t really emphasize that fact, and his statements
on forward-looking issues (no on health care, no on cap and trade, yes
on tax cuts) don’t indicate any particular desire to break with
conservative orthodoxy. And yet, I think the baseline view that
Massachusetts is a liberal state that’s not going to re-elect an
orthodox conservative still seems pretty compelling.

Ezra Klein argued yesterday that party loyalty trumps everything.
