      Health care reform. The economy. Bad candidate. Cheap Democrats. Ben Nelson.

      These are among the myriad excuses Democrats were circulating on Wednesday to explain why a truck-driving, war-supporting, health care reform-opposing Republican will be sitting in "Ted Kennedy's seat" in the U.S. Senate.

      The party is now being forced to re-evaluate their plans for health care reform after Scott Brown's victory in Massachusetts made clear that independent and even many Democratic voters are concerned about health insurance reforms being debated in Washington.

      Brown's win Tuesday is a colossal hit to Democrats, since it will break the party's 60-vote, filibuster-proof majority in the Senate at a time when health care reform is in its final stages. Brown has vowed to vote against the bill if he gets the chance.

      What do you think of the party shift in the Bay State?
