Just in Time

Our colleagues at Time have much of interest on the web too. Two we're reading here:

Remember Martha Coakley? Michael Crowley does. Will the Christine O'Donnell juggernaut blow past snickering Democrats and candidate Chris Coons like this fall's Scott Brown? Crowley suggests this is a real possibiliy in his analysis at Time.com.

Elizabeth Warren has a funny new title: Assistant to the President and Special advisor to the Secretary of the Treasury on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Massimo Calabresi explains the reasoning for her not to get the job as head of the actual agency. He's written a piece for Time's Swampland.

Delaware Senate candidates set the stage for November

(CNN) - Delaware voters were treated to a markedly different tone Thursday night as they watched their two Senate candidates together for the first time since the primaries.

During a candidate's forum, Republican Christine O'Donnell and Democrat Chris Coons displayed little of the animosity that came to define O'Donnell's bitter primary battle with Rep. Mike Castle.

Rather, the night was marked by polite discourse and even agreement as the two candidates sought to lay out their position on many key issues.

Biden to Delaware Friday to help Coons

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2010/images/09/08/art.biden.0610.file2.gi.jpg caption="Joe Biden will appear with Senate candidate Chris Coons at an event in Delaware on Friday."]

Washington (CNN) - Vice President Joe Biden's heading home to Delaware to try and help keep his old Senate seat in Democratic Party hands.

The vice president is scheduled to appear with New Castle County Executive Chris Coons, the Democrat's Senate nominee in Delaware, at an event in Wilmington Friday, according to a Thursday evening e-mail from the Coons campaign.

Earlier Thursday a Biden aide told CNN that the event would take place sometime next week. But Coons' staff said that the scheduling worked out to allow what they describe as a low-key event to occur Friday.

Coons will face off in the November midterm elections against conservative commentator and marketing consultant Christine O'Donnell, who upset Delaware's longtime statewide Rep. Mike Castle in Tuesday's GOP primary.

Biden to campaign with Coons

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2010/images/08/30/art.biden.0825r.gi.jpg caption="Joe Biden will likely appear with Democratic Senate candidate Chris Coons in Delaware next week."]

Washington (CNN) - Vice President Joe Biden's heading home to Delaware to try and help keep his old Senate seat in Democratic party hands.

A Biden aide confirms to CNN that the vice president will likely appear with the New Castle County Executive Chris Coons, the Democrat's Senate nominee in Delaware, at an event in the state sometime next week.

Coons will face off in the November midterm elections against conservative commentator and marketing consultant Christine O'Donnell, who upset Delaware's longtime statewide Rep. Mike Castle, in Tuesday's GOP primary.

Polls suggested that Castle, a former governor and moderate Republican, would have been favored in the general election battle over Coons, but with O'Donnell as the party's nominee, surveys indicate that Coon is considered to have the advantage.

Chris Coons: Delaware's surprise favorite

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2010/images/09/15/art.coons.file2.coons.jpg caption ="Delaware Senate candidate Chris Coons is now well-positioned to win the Senate seat formerly held by Vice President Joe Biden."](CNN) - Chris Coons may turn out to be the luckiest politician in America this year.

The man suddenly favored to win Joe Biden's U.S. Senate seat wasn't even supposed to be in the race, if most pundits are to be believed. State Democrats were lining up behind the vice president's son, Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden.

But Biden unexpectedly decided not to run. And other Democrats took a pass on what was thought to be, at best, an uphill general election climb against veteran GOP Rep. Mike Castle.

Now, with Castle defeated in the primary, Coons suddenly finds himself the favorite against arch-conservative upstart Christine O'Donnell.
