Obama looks to rally votes for Mass. governor (Julie Pace, Associated Press)

President Barack Obama has a warning for Democrats: Even in the most reliably liberal states, no candidate is guaranteed a victory in this volatile election season.

Obama was heading to Boston on Saturday to headline a rally for Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, his longtime friend and political ally. Republicans have tried to use Patrick's close relationship with the president to unseat the governor, who is seeking a second term.

After 16 years of uninterrupted and uniforml;y successful GOP governorship, the voters of MA decided to take unicorn ride and it's been predictably disastrous. In giving him the heave-ho they're just reverting to recent form.
