We thought we had done the Ted Kennedy replacement podcast. The changes came fast and varied…and continue to do so. We talked about who was in and pulled back, who jumped in when Joe Kennedy didn’t run, and who is ready to announce any moment now.
The Dems look like they’ll make a real shoving match. The elephants are much easier. Former MA LG Kerry Healey decided she really didn’t want to run â€” probably personally wise considering her dismal showing when she went for governor. However, that leaves the party with very weak candidates. We discussed those.
On the other side, the only announced candidates are AG Martha Coakley. However, three U.S. Reps, Markey, Capuano and Lynch are likely to join the race. We talked about those and several other possibles.
Ted’s nephew and his widow, Joe and Vicki, said they aren’t in the running and suddenly it’s a race.
From our perspective, we wondered who might be the best progressive in the race. We haven’t resolved that totally.
