In case you missed it: My first guest post On

By Henri Makembe on 02.06.10

I spent a week in Massachusetts helping the Coakley campaign.¬† After the loss, a slew of blog posts and news articles were written analyzing the online component of the race.¬† However, I felt that they all lacked something ‚Äď an insider‚Äôs perspective.¬† I sought to expand on the commentary already in the blogsphere about what really¬† happened on Coakley‚Äôs new media team at HQ.¬†¬†Colin Delany¬†was kind enough to let me guest post on his¬† blog to share my side the story. I titled the post ‚ÄúIn Defense of Martha Coakley‚Äôs New Media Team‚ÄĚ and began with the following:

Running on cheese pizza, RedBull, cold Dunkin Donuts coffee, cookies and the memory of the late Ted Kennedy, I spent the last few days volunteering for¬†Martha Coakley¬†alongside some of the best Democratic new media operatives. Some analysts are describing this as the most important election in the last 50 years ‚ÄĒ not including presidential contests. Despite our best efforts,¬†Scott Brown¬†won the seat that was held by someone who continues to be regarded as one of best, if not the best, senator of our time. Mr. Brown has some big shoes fill, and while I will be working hard against him in 2012, I wish him and his staff the best for the sake of the people of the commonwealth of Massachusetts.
