First rule is, don't take advice from the enemy. You can read him for the purpose of getting in his head but do not let him into yours. Grant did not send a note over to Lee asking if he wanted to inspect the lines together at the Wilderness for old times sake.
Brown is of course very in tune with the voters in Massachusetts. To many Republicans are trying to cram him into some conservative mold. Rush was a little more enthusiastic about the national political implications than I thought prudent. Brown in office will probably align with McCain and represents what I consider the Romney wing of the party. Personally I am fine with that given the community that elected him. Reasonable expectations at the beginning can help avoid the pain of dissapointment in the future.
