Obama's Colossal Miscalculation

Click on the title of this post to read Charlie Cook's article by the same name. He's an astute political observer but MC thinks this time he hasn't gotten it quite right. Obama knew full well what he was doing and the political damage to his party was built in from the beginning. He is not the usual politician Cook is used to covering: he's a hide bound ideologue of the likes we have never seen in the Oval Office before. The hapless Martha Coakley is a cause for optimism, however, and MC thinks Obama parachuting into Massachusetts surely won't be enough to stop Scott Brown from being its next Senator. 2010 is starting out very well indeed.
