Shakin' All Over

Barack Obama is flying into Massachusetts today to bring cash, supplies, and emergency personnel for Martha Coakley, who has been running a disastrous campaign to try to win Teddy Kennedy's former seat in the Senate.

The special election has turned into a national referendum on healthcare, with Coakley's Republican opponent, Scott Brown, ready to break the Democrat's veto-proof majority. Coakley herself isn't helping matters any, by suggesting that devout Catholics shouldn't work in emergency rooms, and running an ad in which she used an image of the World Trade Center (still standing) to represent the "greed and corruption" of Wall Street.

If Coakley falls on Tuesday, it could well be the first falling domino in what will become a very big pileup for the Democrats.

Volunteer phone bank workers still needed!
