Massachusetts Attorney General and notable Eph Martha Coakley ’75 has just put herself out there in support of Hillary Clinton (she is a Dem super). She is the only super of the week for Clinton so far. She said:

Regardless of the outcome of the primary, Mrs. Clinton’s energy, stamina, and resolve have changed the course of history for women seeking office, including the presidency, and I dare say, have changed the course of history of Presidential politics in the United States. It is for these reasons that I will vote for Hillary Clinton in August at the Nominating Convention.

A nice thing to say, but has a rather defeatist ring to it – “regardless of the outcome” telegraphs her prediction of how this will ultimately end up, no?

Even though I probably won’t stay up late enough out here in the east, I want to send a shout out to my fellow Oregonians (some of whom read this blog) who are voting, well at least having their mail-in ballots counted, today. It is pretty exciting that my home state matters this year!
