More 2012: Fenway politics

MASSACHUSETTS: Taegan Goddard writes, “Two years ago, while locked in a tight race to fill the seat of the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA), Martha Coakley (D) defended her hands-off campaign style: ‘As opposed to standing outside Fenway Park? In the cold? Shaking hands?’ The quote epitomized how she managed to lose Kennedy's seat to Republican Scott Brown. President Obama called it one of the ‘great gaffes in modern American politics.’”

Well: “Over the weekend, Mother Jones reports that Elizabeth Warren (D), the leading Democrat to challenge Brown this fall, tweeted a photo of her shaking hands at Fenway Park in the cold.”
