Hillary Clinton wins Massachusetts
Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn’t mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae. Unless you’re running in a senatorial race. When Democrat Martha Coakley misspelled the name of her state, Massachusetts, in a TV ad gunning Republican Scott Brown the writing was on the wall.
Scott Brown might have won the local election but the winner in Massachusetts was Hillary Clinton. She is starting to make Obama look pale as he struggles for traction.
Not that any of the pair makes a pretty picture. For, in politics, as in life, when you choose your friends you also choose your enemies.She has made some odd friends and a middle name such as Barack “Goldman” Obama won’t win you any new friends either. And, as much of the world has learned, it’s not worth being the enemy of the American public. Perhaps they should start practicing what they preach: “You show people what you’re willing to fight for when you fight your friends” – Hillary Clinton.
Coakley, of course, is now qualified to tell you that it is not enough to get just the beginning and the end right. The big piece in the middle is called achievement. Get that right and they might invite you back for another race. With or without your friends.
