FROM THIS EPISODE

Scott Brown was sworn in today, the Republican who won the Senate seat of the late Ted Kennedy in Massachusetts. A lot of the credit for that game-changing political upset went to the Tea Party movement, whose convention begins today in Nashville, Tennessee.  But it's still not clear just what the Tea Party movement is.  As we hear on this rebroadcast of today's To the Point, tea partiers themselves are struggling to figure out if they're a movement, an adjunct of the Republican Party or a collection of angry protesters who can't get along.
