Question Of The Day

What's the deal with all of the attention being focused on the Massachusetts special election? Honestly?

Is it because Republicans are attempting to make it a referendum on... well, Democrats?
Asked about the closely watched race Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union, Republican strategist Mary Matalin said a strong showing by Brown had the potential to be a game-changer for Democrats’ agenda.

It was “once said of Mike Tyson, he hits you so hard, he changes the way you taste. If we win a seat in [Massachusetts] on the signature issue of the Obama agenda, health care, this will change the way politics tastes,” Matalin told CNN Chief National Correspondent John King.

A win by Scott Brown would be “apocalyptic” for Democrats, Matalin said. Should Coakley win, the fact that “we got this close, is nothing short of cataclysmic.”

“[Obama’s] agenda is going to change,” she declared.
Or is it simply because it is a battle for the seat formerly occupied by Ted Kennedy? Thoughts?
