I heard Bill Clinton the other night saying how desperate the situation in Haiti is. Which makes you wonder how he, as “special envoy” to the crippled country, can find the time to abandon the suffering people to go campaign for a hack politician from Massachusetts. No wonder he and Obama roped George W. Bush into the Haiti relief effort. They’re too busy stumping for Martha Coakley.

With the race unexpectedly close and the election just four days away, former President Bill Clinton traveled to Boston today to urge Democrats at a boisterous rally to work hard to elect US Senate candidate Martha Coakley.

“You just have to decide whether you want us to be a tomorrow country or a yesterday country,” Clinton told about 750 of the Democratic faithful in a packed ballroom at the Fairmont Copley Plaza hotel.

“I love my country, and I love Massachusetts,” Clinton added. “Say yes to Martha Coakley, and don’t let anybody say no.”

Coakley, the state’s attorney general, is facing a tough challenge from Republican State Senator Scott Brown, who was little known until this race but who appears to be surging in some polls. A Suffolk University poll released Thursday suggested the two candidates were in a statistical tie, with Brown holding a 50-46 percent edge, with a margin of error of 4.4 percentage points. Independent Joseph L. Kennnedy is also in the race.

Brown appears to be surging. Uh, yeah. I’d say so. Let’s see. He was behind by 30 points a few weeks ago and now appears to be ahead comfortably.

In addition to the aging rock star, Democrats also exhumed aging gigolo Liveshot, a/k/a/ John Heinz Kerry.
