Special Election to Fill Sheriff Koutoujian’s Rep Seat Set



Rachel Maddow Takes out Full Page Ad in Globe: “I’m Not Running”



Steve Grossman in Watertown Tomorrow

(Also of note, today's NYT reports the following:

senior Democrats in Washington said Tuesday that Paul G. Kirk Jr., a former aide to Mr. Kennedy and chairman of the Democratic National Committee, was a likely choice.

The Democrats, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said they believed that Michael S. Dukakis, the former governor and 1988 presidential nominee, said to be under consideration, was out of the running and would not be named.... [S]ome party officials said concerns had been raised privately about the prospect of Mr. Dukakis taking the seat, saying he was a reminder of an era of Democratic failure. They also worried that Mr. Dukakis, 75, might exhibit an independent streak when their main goal at the moment is to hold Democrats as a bloc.

Good Lord.  I don't know much about Paul Kirk, so I don't have an opinion.  But the fear of Dukakis exhibiting an "independent streak" strikes me as most amusing -- not because he wouldn't do it, but because they're so scared of it. - promoted by David)

What Might a County Caucus Look Like?

(Gotta agree with this. A thirty-minute debate? I think something more substantial could and should have been arranged. Enough silliness -- let's talk turkey.

BTW -- this was edited for brevity, and for proper fair use. Don't just cut and paste entire articles, folks. Post a link and use a few paragraphs, max. - promoted by Charley on the MTA)

Becoming an ‘Insider’

(A great story, both of arcane but quite important inside baseball caucus rules, and of an outsider working his way in. - promoted by David)
