    This is a VERY important election for the country, and certainly draws a line in the sand and forces people to take a position. The position is largely about keeping the bad financial policies in place that crippled our economy almost to 1930's status while only a select few got real rich. These same people are fighting with everything they have to convince the avg. american that Obama and the Dems are going to ruin America.
    There are arguments to have about size of gov. and those are certainly valid and good arguments to hold, but purposely sending money to a State that many donors have ZERO interest in, to try and place a person who will fight to get a select few rich, and hurt any process our presidential administration could make in helping, is as shameful as starting the Health Care Debate with "Look, Obama's putting together 'Death Panels' to 'kill grandma" like so many on the fringe right have already done... Who is a bigger idiot, the person who makes this crap up and spits it out, or the avg. joe that actually believes it?

    Is this man leading our country OR eternally campaigning for his party?

    I'd say that if he really wanted America to succeed, he would put the needs of the American people ahead of his personal, radical ideology.

    Contrary to his promise(s) Obama is the most partisan president that I can remember.

    So Obama is going to tell us how great Coakley is. Mr President I ask you this question. Have you ever met Ms. Coackly? And if so have you had first hand experience working with her? If you cant answer those questions, dont blow smoke up our arses.

    This is a wind-fall for Republican supporters...Any little thing that appears to maybe, just maybe go thier way is exhaulted and you get to toot your horns a little bit.
    Well sorry, you may think you have a win here but you most likely will be disappointed again

    Why doesn't he stay in Washington for 5 minutes and actually WORK for the people that elected him. The campaign is over...do YOUR job that you got elected to do–remember all those lies, I mean "promises" of change & hope. I "hope" Mass. "changes" the one-sided corrupt balance in Washington.

    And will Gov. Deval Patrick be onstage with the POTUS in Ma. on Sunday? Deval Patrick should have a new moniker. The invisible Governor! Where is he???

    @Ann who wrote "Maybe we should elect 100 at large senators."
    That is exactly what we do now, these caniadates do not represent the people, they represent the party. "We the People" are the last thing on their minds.

    AWESOME. Brown is sure to win now, does this confessed LIAR realize his popularity is lower than any other president's at the same point of his tenure?

    Great more T.V. time. Can't he ever just quietly do his job? Does his ego need to be caressed daily? Does he not get enough love at home? I'm TIRED of seeing the interviews in print and on television. I hope Coakley loses so he realizes people want him to do his job and to stop worrying so much about others. By the way, who's paying? Has another reason to be in Boston been generated so he can write off the flight? Before anyone jumps all over me, I didn't like when President Bush did campaigning either. I consider it a boondoggle of a trip!

    It is nice to see that everything is going so well that he can take the time to campaign. What type of price is it for the president to take a trip to Boston? Good to see in these economic times that the man that is supposed to be so concerned about the welfare of the country takes needless trips.

    I have every confidence that Massachusetts will demonstrate that it, in fact, represents the civilized part of the country that consistently votes for moving America ahead....not the backward pieces of the country that are willing to vote for tea baggers like Brown.
