  •  Coakley's campaign was like being kicked out... (4+ / 0-)

    ...of the Bowery for slovenliness.  That she would even consider (out loud!) another statewide run just reinforces how un-self-aware she is.

      I'm not a Coakley fan, for several reasons, but after the Brown fiasco she did win an election.

      Her problem with Brown was that she literally didn't show up for the campaign.  She thought that the primary was all that mattered, so after she won it, she went on vacation.  Brown didn't.  Only after she returned to meet an ascending Brown did she start campaigning.  But since she had assumed it was in the bag, her campaign manager was an insider from her office, not a pro, and they ran a lousy campaign.  I doubt she'll make the same mistakes again.
