Martha Coakley is one small step away from becoming Senator Edward Kennedy’s successor in the United States Senate.
The Republicans don’t have the numbers to defeat her in the final election.
So the primary was actually the real deal for her.
This we know – Martha Coakley was a good prosecutor and a better than good Attorney General.
She will make a good and honest United States Senator.
But she faces entrance into a nearly all men’s club where most of the 100 person membership are multi-millionaires far removed from the problems of the common man.
Coakley grew up in modest circumstances.
She has become what she is today through hard work and intelligence.
Our congratulations to the attorney general.
She has won an extraordinary victory.
