Down to the Wire

We're in the home stretch for the special election in Massachuetts to fill the vacated seat that Ted Kennedy held for decades.   Suddenly, the Democrats have awakened to the very real possibility that the voters may elect a Republican - horror of horrors! 

The people of Massachusetts should be outraged that the Democrats have taken them for granted for so long.  Coakley apparently didn't even think she had to campaign much, believing that the voters would automatically elect a Democrat to replace the late Ted Kennedy.  Life has a way of throwing us curveballs, doesn't it? 

Whatever the outcome, this election has been intriguing to observe.  Americans have been alarmed and energized by our leftist president and his Congressional cohorts.  Apathetically sitting on the sidelines is no longer an option for voters who fear for the future of this country.  Watching the Dems scrambling in this bluest of states has been fun and may well be a harbinger of things to come in November.
