We the peopleIn his first comment following Scott Brown’s stunning victory in the Massachusetts special election to fill the seat of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy, President Barack Obama told the losing candidate, Martha Coakley, “you can’t win them all.” No, but President Obama hasn’t won any since his own election more than 15 months ago (not counting the Nobel Peace Prize, which was an unearned gift). Three candidates he campaigned for in New Jersey, Virginia and Massachusetts lost, and his personal appeal for Chicago to host the Olympics in 2016 was rejected. That’s 0-4. If he were a quarterback, the coach would be eyeing the backup right about now.
