Keep Hope Alive, Scott Brown

For a Jesse Jackson endorsement:

As Democrats in Washington and Massachusetts work to paint Sen. Scott Brown as a pawn of Republican power brokers, one prominent Democrat broke ranks yesterday to hail Brown’s “vision” and “sense of independence.”

The Rev. Jesse Jackson.

“We’re all impressed with his sense of independence,” Jackson said yesterday at Park Street T Station, where he was advocating for mass transit funding. “Somebody has to go look at the republic, not just the Republicans. Somebody has to look at democracy, not just Democrats. He seems to have a broader view of politics than just party politics. That’s where I come in. I respect his vision he shares.”
