From the Boston Globe’s opinion page.
If Martha Coakley loses today, it wonâ€™t be because she didnâ€™t put up enough signs on Blue Hill Ave. Itâ€™ll be because she failed to convince enough of the people who put up the Obama signs on Blue Hill Ave. and a lot of other avenues across Massachusetts that Obamaâ€™s ability to get anything done depends on her winning the election.
Really? Is the candidate’s absolutely inept campaign to blame? Well, to some extent, yes. Her divine right of ascension mentality and the countless gaffes that came with it probably was off-putting even to the generally elitist citizens of Massachusetts.
Maybe the tired rhetoric of looking out for the little guy by taking on evil insurance companies rang hollow even as she openly attended a fundraiser held by the aforementioned evil insurance companies.
Or, and I’m just shooting from the hip here, this is a referendum of Obama’s bankrupt-the-nation agenda?
Well, I’m going to start some premature gloating as the Brown-Coakley election takes place today.
