    I think Markey is doing fine. He's making appearances, going to debate next week.
    And he's letting Gomez self=destruct.
    The reason Gomez is attacking Markey is because he knows he is losing.

    And I'm pretty excitied about Markey, I think he will be a great senator!

    Obama 2012...going to win it with our support!!!

      but coakley probably should have won, too. gomez is attacking because he knows it will work. and he knows its going to be a super low-turnout election. depending on where things stand in a month, if he can motivate just a few percentage points of his base, he could pull it off.

      i just cant get excited about markey. i like his policies. he'd probably vote the way i want him to vote. but i feel like more than that is needed in the senate the way things are unfolding down there. i had really hoped the capuano was going to run. thats the kind of senator i wish we could get. markey is three years older than liz warren, but he feels about 30 years older. and he's taking body blow after body blow in the press and not fighting back. warren made that mistake too, but in the end, her sheer charisma won out despite her utter ineptitude on the campaign trail.

        the environment and we need that bad.

        A great combination, 2 liberal senators focusing on the environment (climate) and finance.  I'm excited by this but worried about Gomez.  He'll stoop to anything and that's dangerous when combined with talk radio and a lot of money.

        about what? Have you even looked at his web site? Tlkaed about his polices with the people around you? Asked people you meet who they are going to vote for? Ask them why, provide answers if they say Gomez? Explained to people that Gomez is a private equity investor? Explained he emphasizes Navy Seal to avoid explaining what a private equity investor does?

        Define "not fighting back".

        I know that i write using run on paragraphs. It is dificult to read comments that do not use capitals at the beginning of sentences, or for proper names.

        2012-2016 President Obama, Vice President Biden, Senator Warren. For a LIFETIME, federal judges. Get the filibuster changed. Steamroll.
