Will it be Republican Scott Brown, or Democrat Martha Coakley? The race is a statistical dead heat, and if there is any numerically significant initiative, it’s Brown’s.
Stop and consider that for a moment. We’re talking about Massachusetts, folks. It is amazing that this seat is even in play. For Brown to be in a plausible position to win it is incredible.
Obama tried to save it with a campaign visit. The irony there is that it’s Obama’s fault the race is even close in the first place. By coming all guns blazing on all fronts, Obama and his allies in Congress have guaranteed the failure of a substantial part of their radical leftist agenda. A modicum of restraint and a little accompanying patience might have passed it all.
Instead, people are paying attention, and instead of a mediocre candidate like Coakley getting a five- or six-point win on momentum in one of the bluest states in the union, she may well lose.
