      mother treated this race like a cakewalk. The blame doesn't lie solely with Coakley. When she got back did she fumble? Sure, but so have many other experienced politicians. Especially when the only "race" was the primary.

      I realize Coakley lost an important seat and that still rankles, but it's been 3 years now and she's exhibited that she can in fact campaign. She took a race for granted and it cost her. I don't think she will ever make that same mistake again. This isn't meant as a defense, but as a recognition of facts.
