When the "special election" was annouced for Senator's Kennedy's seat, we didn't think it would be all that interesting. Being Massachusetts, we figured it would be a choice between a few obvious Democrats and some token Republican.
We are now a day away from the election and things are anything but quiet. We have received a bunch of emails, several calls, and a pretty impressive bunch of direct mail pieces from both candidates. Unfortunately, none of which said anything substantive or persuasive. It appears the biggest beneficiary of this election will be the advertisers.
It is hard to believe that there is even a race, but there is, and it is going to be a squeaker...if you trust the polls.
"Some" would like to see the Democrats lose tomorrow because "their" candidate lost in 2008. Some would like to see Scott Brown win so that the Republicans can hinder the vote for the Healthcare bill. Others (although possibly the same) would rather not see President Obama succeed at any cost, even if to the detriment to this country.
Tomorrow's vote is no longer just about Coakley Vs Brown. It is about leadership, change, and moving forward. It is also about fear, frustration, and impatience.
It is about everything, and not all of it is logical.
By tomorrow evening, the crazy storms now outside--one the weather, the other this senate race--will have passed. It will be a very interesting Tuesday. If you live in MA and want to have a say, get out there and be counted. We will be voting bright and early. [Permalink] -Coakley Vs Brown
