To former state party chair, Congressman and lobbyist Chester Atkins and the other Massachusetts Democrats who believe that Gloucester attorney, elected official, activist and former fire fighter Ed O’Reilly is a “nuisance candidate” see Boston Herald and should not ruin John Kerry’s summer by waging a primary campaign – you should be ashamed – and warned. It is precisely that kind of attitude that has friends of Hillary playing golf next weekend rather than making plans for Denver.
When will you learn? Didn’t I hear you say that Deval was a nuisance in 2006? And that Obama was a nuisance in 2007? I have voted for John Kerry every time his name has been on the ballot and probably will again this fall, but please – the best thing for John Kerry, Democrats and the electorate is to have more, not less contests. Somehow, I think our junior Senator will survive a few less trips to the islands and a few more trips to Brockton, Fall River, Lowell and Worcester.
