    He won that one election on poor Democratic turnout. And he had surprise on his side. Ain't happening again.

    We have rocked on turnout ever since. Ask John Tierney.

    He went from being the most popular elected official in Massachusetts to losing to an unknown political novice Harvard professor, by 8 points. And he tarnished his brand doing it; no more Mr. Nice Guy.

    On the other hand, they don't have anyone else. Every else got creamed, too.

    A society is judged by how well it cares for those in the dawn of life, the children. By how well it cares for those in the twilight of life, the elderly. And, by how well it cares for those on the edge of life; the poor, the sick, and the disabled.
