Scott Brown's Busy Day

I guess he's going to 'hit the ground running':
Brown's first meeting on Capitol Hill Thursday will be in the 10 a.m. ET hour with Sen. John McCain of Arizona. McCain, the 2008 GOP presidential nominee, endorsed Brown's bid to fill the last three years of the term of the late Sen. Ted Kennedy.

Brown's next stop is a meeting with John Kerry, the Bay State's senior senator. In the last week of the heated campaign, Kerry, the Democrats's 2004 presidential nominee, accused Brown supporters of "bullying and threats" and urged Brown to speak out and get his supporters under control.

Brown teams up next with the man he will replace, interim Sen. Paul Kirk, a longtime friend and trusted aide to Kennedy who was named as a temporarily replacement for the late senator, after he died of cancer in August. Kirk has said he hopes to make the transition as smooth as possible.

Brown also meets with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the top Republican in the chamber. Brown's victory gives the Republicans 41 senators in the chamber, denying the Democrats their 60 seat filibuster proof super majority.
That's a lot of chatting with some really (seemingly) boring dudes. I'd love to be a fly-on-the-wall for these meetings -- particularly the ones with McCain and McConnell. My guess is that the GOP brass are going to try to put a leash on Mr. Brown right away.
