Not the Kennedy Seat--the Webster Seat, the Sumner Seat, the Lodge Seat

Scott Brown has some pretty famous precedessors.  Besides Ted Kennedy, and John Kennedy, that Senate office has been held by some very notable citizens.  Indeed, some of the great conservatives and Republicans have held that seat:

Daniel Webster–noble defender of Union and the rights of contract.

Charles Sumner–great Republican, the scourge of the “twin relics of barbarism”–slavery and polygamy (1856 Republican platform).

Henry Cabot Lodge–Republican Senate leader supporter of a strong and prudent foreign policy, fiscal restraint, and sound money.

You are in good company, Mr. Brown.  Aspire to live up to their example.
