    There is a 15 day period after the election before it can certified. It isn't stalling but state law.
    So if she loses and they can get the bill passed before Feb 5th kirk could vote on it. anything after the 15 days would be stalling.
    Anyway I expect her to win, Brown cannot represent a liberal state like Ma from the GOP side and the people are realizing that.
    The winner has to run in 2012 so if Coakley is a lousy senator she could be primaried or if Brown somehow won he would be gone in 2012 for sure.
