Now, I've received an EMail from John Kerry! Don't know why, as I have never been registered as anything but Republican. Anyway, it's all about Ted Kennedy and his "life's work", health care reform and the 41st vote. Most President's would be ecstatic to have a 59-41 majority. The Democrats are trying to make people think that their Party would lose their majority, thus scaring Democrats into voting for Martha Coakley (sadly, I know some people that believe this to be the case!). The current overwhelming, filibuster-proof majority is unhealthy. Scott's election will force discussion and debate! That is what is needed, and that is the American way! So, Senator Kerry, you can do this for Ted; we're doing this for America!
The election to fill the Senate seat my friend Ted Kennedy held for forty-seven years is just three days away.
And the stakes couldn't be higher. If Martha Coakley wins, she would be the 60th vote we need to pass health reform, and Ted's life's work will become law.
But what if we don't all dedicate ourselves to getting as many folks out to the polls as possible? Reform could be defeated. Her Republican opponent has committed to be the 41st vote against standing up to the big insurance companies -- and we can't let that happen.
So there are two things I need you to do.
The first is to make absolutely sure you vote on Tuesday.

And the second is to call 5 neighbors in your precinct.
Share their polling location with them, and, most importantly, let them know how important their vote is for Massachusetts and for the fate of President Obama's agenda.

This is a tight race, and every single vote could make the difference.
Thank you for your help. Let's do this for Ted,
Senator John Kerry
