ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The moon is not so blue these days as it tugs at the tides and shifts the collective heart and minds of the voters in Massachusetts. Scott Brown pulled out what will go down as one of the greatest political victories in recent history.

This win could only be topped by the New York Jets winning the Super Bowl. That victory may take some divine intervention, but what happened in Massachusetts did not. It only took the will of the people. That is what makes America the greatest country on the globe.

If the White House, President Obama and the members of Congress are smart - and I am not sure they are - they will reflect on what has occurred here and realize that the people of this country still hold the power. Oftentimes, we the people do not impose this power on our elected representatives, but when we do, it usually is delivered like a freight train. Its shock waves run deep and rattle the foundations of those in the seats of power.

Will Mr. Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Rep. Barney Frank and the other left-wing power brokers feel the heat of this train as it passes through the halls of government? We shall see. If they don’t hear it now, they will hear it again as it roars and rumbles through Washington and across the country in November.

If the people of Massachusetts, the bluest of blue states, can do the seemingly impossible and put a Republican in the seat that Edward M. Kennedy occupied for 47 years, we the people can do it as well.

The train is in the station. If you put your ear to the wind, you will hear the conductor call “All aboard!”
