Could it be that Coakley was a poor, weak candidate to begin with and being female had little to do with it?

It wasn't the woman thing... it was her politics that failed her!
She didn't get down with the people and listen... she assumed she would win and snoozed through the campaign... and in popped Brown.
It was upsetting that the heavy hitter & costly Obama flew into Boston to support her.... that hurt her more than helped!

Obama coming to Massachusetts said something...you don't send the general out when the sargeant should be able to take of the task.
She was in trouble and they knew it.
