Boy, Ninni Tsongas is one dizzy broad! Washington is no place for women. There are more women in Washington now then ever before and look at the mess it is in; unprecedented. Feminism=Communism. Google it.

This is just one super liberal picking another. I doubt the top 5 democrats would vote any differently on issues.

If people really wanted to shake up the system they would vote for a different party then the one that currently runs this state.

Massachusetts needs a major turnover in elected officials at all levels.

Nikki supports Martha. Big deal!! Hey Nikki, Remember when you were CAMPAIGNING you said that you would file a bill your very first day to withdraw from IRAQ. Ummmmm, I looked into the house rolls and guess what...no bill filed. We knew it then that you were a blowhard and you havent changed our mind one bit. LIAR

Your right, but it will probable never happen in this state. Unfortunately Ma. voters don't have the common sense to change things in this state.

Who really cares about Niki Tsongas and who she backs - I mean really - did anyone ever hear of Niki Tsongas before her husband Paul was in office - She only has the job because of her husband. I have through about Coakley but now I have my doubts. I think I'll go with Capuano - I think she did more damage to the Coakley campaign than anything. At least her staff knew what they wanted. Niki "who" -

How about you support and vote for the BEST candidate. Nikki got huge donations from "Girl Power" Emily's Group. Enough of voting for someone because of gender or race. Emily's has their own agenda of having an all female Congress. Give me a break.

Big surprise. Does anyone know what Tsongas has done for MA? I don't. Her husband was co-founder of the Concord Coalition, a stupid organization if ever there was one. I believe their goal is to tax the heck out of you now, do away with entitle programs, so your grand kids will do a little better.

Brown has no chance. At one time I thought whoever the new senator was would be better than Ted on the 1st day. But after that debate the other night,it appears even Kerry will be better than any of these candidates. Is taht even possible?

Just what we need another unresponsive pol is Wash. Her previous record is poor. And her office's record of investigating State employees wrong doing is also poor.

In this race each democrat is as bad as the next. I am voting for the other party. It remains the only way to shake things up.

Great,
One aweful pol supporting another. Big deal, does Coakley even have a passport to travel outside the US? If so, I am sure it has only been stamped a couple times for vacation. Lots of experience there for Nikki to campaign for. Maybe they can both get together to vote for another tax increase and then later complaim that it is hurting business.

I agree, who cares who she backs. If she had been married to anyone else she wouldn't be sitting in Washington. The people of Mass better wake up and stop voting in all of these liberals before we can't even recognize our country. I wouldn't care who was running on the Republican ticket I'll never vote for anyone running for the Democratic party again!!

No surprise here. Tsongas endorsement of Coakley (or anyone else) is reason enough for me to back someone else. Her credibility has slipped off the charts. Take a nap, Nikki.
