You know, I simply could not put my heart into the Coakley race. Not again. And... it was a sure win. I was tired - no more for now.

My heart is gone again. I won't breathe until Tuesday night when we win. And if we don't? Kiss health care reform goodbye. Kiss anything progressive goodbye - it's the swing vote. It will make Obama's re-election a mountain climb.
