The candidates and their spouses

Day after day I receive a flier in my mailbox attacking “Professor” Elizabeth Warren with myriad claims about her protecting big business. I am shocked that her husband has not taken to the airwaves to defend his wife against these attacks. I listen to Scott Brown’s wife on the radio and watch her on television saying that we are not to believe what others are saying about her husband not standing up for women.

While I do wonder what people would say about Warren if her husband stepped forward to defend his wife in the political arena, I wonder more why Scott Brown, who says he is prochoice, has not gone on record to say that his belief in a woman’s right to choose will be an important factor when voting on the next Supreme Court nominee. When Brown does that, he will not need to hide behind his wife.
