More than just a pretty face

Kudos to Senator Scott Brown, R-MA, for breaking ranks with Republicans and voting for sweeping financial reform. It's heartening to see him willing to risk his status as party darling to do what's best for the people who sent him to Washington.

I did my share of hysterical hand-wringing when it looked like a dreaded Republican would take the Kennedy seat, but am happy to report that, this morning at least, it looks like I was wrong.
