So I was walking around my ‘hood doing lit drops for Silbert (awesome response, BTW), and listened to the LG forum on my old-school walkman. Dorky, I know, but I fully admit to my illness.
Anyway, I felt both candidates were on their games today, and it really just left me feeling bad about what could have been. They were both smart and articulate, and compared to the way Deb Goldberg presents herself, well, there’s just no comparison.
If these two, Murray and Silbert, had been the only two candidates all along, this would have been a classic race, maybe even a baby Kerry/Weld race from 96. 2 smart people, 2 articulate people, 2 people with great ideas and track records.
I wish it had been just them all along.
Well done both.
Oh, and Goldberg was a clear loser here, although I’m sure the Globe won’t ignore her for not being there, and will probably print a separate photo of her tomorrow just to throw her a bone. But I loved it at the end when Phil Johnston said “it’s too bad they both can’t win”, which was code for “I hate Deb Goldberg and can’t bear the thought of her as the nominee.”
