KEEPING 60 VOTES IN THE U.S. SENATE

During a time when democrats try to get healthcare reform for millions of Americans and other progressive issues through the Congress a special Senate seat election  is brewing up to be a close one. The late Sen. Edward Kennedy passed away last year a leader of many social agendas such as healthcare, living wages, and a voice for many of the poor and  downtrodden  around America and in his state of Massachusetts. Now his possible successor  Democrat Martha Coakley is trying to win that seat and carry on that tradition.

Unfortunately, she has not ran a strong campaign and has allowed a teabagging conservative unknown candidate called Scott Brown to close an almost 39% lead to a tie in most of the pre-state polls. Yesterday President Obama stomped in Massachusetts to help get out the democrat base and rally the troops. 

So which will it be? Will the democrat base rally and come out and support Coakley or will the reformist conservative wing of the republican party ‘teabaggers wrestle away the senate seat’?  Obviously moderates and independents have a big roll and a lot of the vote I believe lies on the economy. Do they feel putting in a teabagger is going to help in changing the economic recession or will they feel that giving Obama and the democrats more time in turning the ship?
