    Marsha sucked as a candidate...Thought it was in the bag.

    That attitude is only but slightly less appealing than the candidate who wants it too much.

    Luntz groups always remind me of school trips with slow kids.

    I wonder if this could have happened in a general election. I mean, if Teddy had retired, named and campaigned for his successor, I doubt this would have happened.

    Coakley was a poor candidate, but the WH and the DNC took that seat for granted and didn't seem to catch on until Rasmussen, of all people, woke them a few weeks ago. Even then, they probably thought all BO had to do was show up to save her. That they did not see this coming is a political embarrassment.

    Add to that, Romney's advisors (I assume the same team that forced Teddy off his butt to actually campaign in '94) who obviously know how to win in Mass, were on loan to Brown.

    A special election, a poor candidate, an apathetic party leader whose numbers are in decline, an unpopular legislative agenda...and watch BO just keep on driving this train right over the cliff.

    A political campaign is a job interview. You want someone to protect and further your interests and listen to your needs and take care that you are protected.

    Brown made the voter believe that he would listen and promote the interests of the people of MA. Cokesly obviously wasn't interested in anyone but the party leadership and the big donors. She was out of touch with the people, and seemed not to like them much.

    America rejects progressives just as they reject neo-cons.

    Coakley was a poor candidate.

    Plus, she never posed nude like Brown did.

    That got a lot of votes from the ladies.
