Vote Coakley to prevent any comeback of the GOP

After the passing of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, I had decided I would sit out the election that will fill the rest of his term.

Even though I think Martha Coakley will win easily, Scott Brown has certainly gotten my attention. It seems to me Scott Brown is a hope for those forces that were voted out of power in 2006 and 2008. John McCain, the candidate who picked Sarah Palin for a VP running mate, snapped me out of my sitting-this-election-out mood when he endorsed Scott Brown; the forces that gave the Bush administration a blank check are trying to make a comeback.

My vote for Martha Coakley will be a vote with a dual purpose; like many other votes, it will help her win big, and maintain that show of respect for Sen. Kennedy's seat and legacy.
