President Obama is now scheduled to come to the Bay State on Sunday to stump for Martha Coakley and attempt to breath life into a floundering campaign. However, you have to wonder, why? Even Coakley's own internal polls now show her trailing challenger Scott Brown. After suffering two fairly large embarrassments in New Jersey and Virginia just a few months ago you would think the administration would be reticent to wade into these waters again.
Does the White House know something we don't? Do they see a clear enough path to victory that they are willing to send the “speechifier” in chief to rally the troops? Or is this a last gasp desperation move realizing that if Brown wins then plenty of moderate Democrat legislators will see the writing on the wall and begin to abandon the ultra liberal agenda the administration is pursuing?
