Two Years Later, Martha Coakley's Redemption Is Official

Coakley talks to the Globe about her loss to Scott Brown and what became her major comeback as the state’s attorney general. “The thing I feel worst about is people’s perception, and the media, that somehow I felt entitled to the seat, that I hadn’t worked hard enough, that I took it for granted,’’ she says. “I knew if I was going to run for reelection I had to face it head-on among constituents.’’ Turns out that no one — not even Michelle Obama — was more upset about the loss than Coakley herself.  [ | NYT]
