We got specific today with Rep. Martin J. (Marty) Walsh, candidate for Boston mayor. With 13, maybe even 15, running to succeed Tom Menino, Walsh has the shared problem — differentiating himself.

We did a double today — speculation on the SCOTUS ruling (not due for three months) on the Prop 8 (Hollingsworth) oral arguments, followed by less unsure conjecture on Boston Mayor Tom Menino.
For those who have to see for themselves, the SCOTUS made the 82 pages of arguments from this morning available as a PDF […]
You can’t say, “No more Mr. Nice Guy,” about John Connolly. The popular at-large Boston City Councilor will always be pleasant and he promised us he’d run an upbeat campaign for Mayor this year. He has a flexible campaign, accounting for Mayor Tom Menino running for a sixth term or facing other Councilors and outsiders […]
