After reading his column in today’s Globe, it is safe to say that Dan Payne clearly “absorbs” blogs.
His candidate assessments are okay and he finally put his finger on why Andrea Silbert may not be taking off…it’s attitude/over-sell that offends, in spite of resume.
He missed Congressman Tierney in Murray Congressional endorsement list…not that that will win or lose the election…
As for Goldberg, he predicts that she is as likely to win as anyone because if Gabrieli could buy the LG spot 4 years ago, Deb may be able to buy it in Sept with double the personal cash in play.
I am not ready to agree with that because what Payne does not factor in is that 4 years ago Chris was not running against just two women.
Even though Payne describes Andrea Silbert as “crassly ambitious and arrogant”, I think she is still the kind of candidate the Globe editorial Board will cling to..(they cover themselves with a woman to balance their Gov. endorsement, and keep the Harvard-Newton-Brookline crowd happy without having to endorse Goldberg)
Deb could compete or block newspaper endorsements by buying considerable advertising space…she is the only candidate that can afford to by print ads…and anyone who thinks that doesn’t cross pollenate into the Editorial rooms is a true idealist.
All endorsements aside…2 women, one man, lower card race…I still think Murray carries the day.
