I lived in Massachusetts for four years in Northampton, a small beautiful town that had over 40 restaurants, shops, and a small farmer's market. I went to Smith College there, and my time there seems like a dream. I fought hard for Howard Dean's campaign during my time there, and when Dean lost, I bucked up, went out, canvassed, and voted for Kerry.

The Smith College Democrats chapter is the feistiest chapter of women you'll ever have met, and they're out there working hard to help elect Martha Coakley as the next Senator from Massachusetts.


This is my college, a beautiful place where women strive to succeed. Even though Martha Coakley may not have gone to Smith College, she's still a part of that legacy of strong women who have fought to make a difference in the lives of those around her.

I really want those of you in Massachusetts to bring out at least three or four people with you to vote. Do whatever it takes to convince your friends, family, and acquaintances to get out and vote for Coakley.

Vote for a beautiful Massachusetts.
Vote for all these wonderful colleges and universities that teach thousands of young students about democracy.
Vote to help keep this seat blue in a blue state.
Vote for the future ahead.

Don't let this beautiful blue state turn brown.

Go out and vote to prevent this brown-out!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
