Kevin DuJan at Hillbuzz is up to his ol’ tricks with the cucumber and mayo sammie of the 2012 campaign to elect…
“Today I’d like to spend some time taking a look back to the 1994 Massachusetts Senate election, where Ted Kennedy beat the mittens out of Willard Romneycare.
I was in high school during this campaign, but I remember how ugly a year it was for Democrats — and also remember how hard President Clinton campaigned for Democrats coast to coast…even having to spend an unusually large amount of time in Massachusetts to help the Kennedy Dynasty cling to its seat in the Senate.
1994 was the Republicans’ best chance of defeating Ted Kennedy: the stars aligned and the Fates conspired to produce the perfect storm that could have snatched “the Kennedy seat” away from the aristocratic spiders of Hyannis Port…but Willard Mittens Romneycare lost — and lost BIG — to Kennedy.
Why was that?
