I'll be keeping an eye on them ;) I don't think they will make or break any issue, but we'll see.

It makes or breaks a very specific one. If Coakley wins, there is no roadblock to the healthcare bill. If Brown wins, the dems can no longer block a filibuster and lose a crucial vote. The question is, if Brown wins, will the dems tie it up in challenges and court battles until after they can have the vote. As long as the seat is contested, they're safe. If there's someone there with an (r) their jobs get much more difficult.
If Brown wins, which I doubt he will, Reid will go to the house and make the win as the reason they need to pass the Senate version of the bill. The health care bill isn't as dependant on a Dem winning MA's seat as the media is making it out to be.
