Our quotes this morning are on one subject alone – the stunner in Massachusetts:

“We can’t win them all.” — President Obama, quoted by Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley, following Coakley’s loss in that state’s special election for the U.S. Senate

“If you lose Massachusetts and that’s not a wake-up call, there’s no hope of waking up.” – Senator Evan Bayh, D-Ind., to ABC’s Jonathan Karl

“From the agenda of President Obama and the legacy of the late Edward M. Kennedy to a referendum on the Democratic monopolies of power on Capitol and Beacon hills, voters in a lopsidedly Democratic state flooded the polls on a dreary winter day to turn conventional wisdom on its head.” — Brian C. Mooney, The Boston Globe

“It’s frustrating because even I think even a mediocre campaign in Massachusetts probably would have won that election.” — former Obama campaign manager David Plouffe, to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos
