The loss by the once-favored Coakley for the seat that the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy held for nearly half a century signaled big political problems for the president’s party this fall when House, Senate and gubernatorial candidates are on the ballot nationwide.
It was just a little over a week ago that a Rasmussen Poll showed Scott Brown had closed to within single digits of the heavily favored Coakley. By the time the Democrats realized the momentum had shifted, it was too late. Even a last-minute campaign swing by President Obama himself did nothing to stem the tide.
