Will Beau Be a No-Go?

Boy, how would you like to be Beau Biden this morning?

G. Terry Madonna, director of the Floyd Institute’s Center for Politics and Public Affairs at Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pa., said the Brown victory could give Biden serious pause.

“That would cause Biden to have real, real second thoughts about jumping into a race like this,” said Madonna, who earned his master’s and doctoral degrees at the University of Delaware.While Delaware Democrats have a 17-percentage-point registration edge over Republicans, the state is not nearly as Democratic as Massachusetts and Castle is a popular politician who has fashioned a reputation as a moderate.

If the “do it for Teddy” family-dynasty argument couldn’t win in Massachusetts – heck, it wasn’t even enough to carry Hyannis Port! — how strong is the “let’s keep this seat in the Biden family” message going to work in Delaware?
