The strategist spoke approvingly when he quoted a fellow Democrat who said, "'I'd rather have Scott Brown for two years than Martha Coakley for the rest of my life."It's tough to win if the base won't embrace the endorsed candidate. However, the Right will continue to spin this as some sort of referendum on Obama, let them! Remember how they work, when they lose they say 'All politics is local', when they win, it is a national referendum! Remember that next week when they lose Dick Day's seat to a Democratic Challenger!
UPDATE: On why the Dems need to grow a spine and not be wrapped up on the Rights attempt to hijack President Obama administration. Jon Stewart lays it out:
"Let me see if I have this straight. You need to replace perhaps the most beloved liberal in the history of the Senate with a candidate that believes Curt Schilling is a Yankee fan. Because if this lady loses, the health care reform bill that the beloved late senator considered his legacy will die," Stewart said. "And the reason it will die is because if Coakley loses, Democrats will only have then an 18-vote majority in the Senate. Which is more than George W. Bush ever had in the Senate when he did whenever the f**k he wanted."60 is a dream number, if the Left can't get anything done with a majority on both sides the least they can do is not let the Right blame them for all that is wrong in the world, but they will, because that is what they do.
