Nice send-off for the Secretary of State tonight at Fanueil Hall. High point for me was seeing Senator-be-Be Cowan’s eyes light up when I introduced myself as a fellow Stoughton resident. Not what usually happens when you mention that.
Congressman Markey was very visible and interview-accessible. I mean that in a good way. I didn’t see Lynch. Guess he was announcing around the same time. Still…
The Mayor looked good. Best line of the night was his insisting that the Kerry-Heinzes retain their Beacon Hill pad: “we need the tax revenue.”
Kerry didn’t light up the room–he’d already done this twice today–but the pride and affection people felt for him was palpable–throngs waiting to congratulate him on his way out.
Anyway, here’s a slideshow if you’re interested.
