Calibration check on Brown/Coakley.
You’re at the MLK Day Breakfast in Boston and the two candidates for Senate are talking.
- One candidate uses the opportunity to make a stump speech.
- The other candidate – who did not – later criticizes the first one as being ‘inappropriate.’
- One candidate ‘received polite, seated applause’ but enjoyed a ‘tepid reception at a stronghold of Democratic politics.’
- The other is ‘received warmly, shaking hands and taking pictures with well-wishers during pauses in the morning’s event.’
Quick: which one is the Democratic candidate, and which other is the Republican one?
Yes, indeed, we live in interesting times.
