I realize John touched on this earlier, but since we only had 500 comments, I don’t think it’s been fully discussed. If Coakley loses today, in what way will it be Obama’s fault?
Showing up too late to support her? Crappy health care bill that pisses voters off? Pissing off the base?
What am I leaving out?
(This is not entirely facetious, it’s possible that there is something that the WH could have done differently in this race.)
Feel free to speculate on Village narratives too: too cold and aloof, misreading the mandate (I expect to hear that one a lot)….
Update. If you could pick just one philosopher with whom to rebuke Obama, who would it be?
