As usual, sco nails it on Deval Patrick’s next hurdle:
… I think Patrick could appeal to independents as much as, if notmore than, Reilly. (…) but at some point all thattalk is going to have to turn to action — even if it’s just takingleadership on one or two issues — and that will be when we’ll see themake-or-break moment in his campaign.
Yup. I’ve suggested wind power, or at least an ambitious renewable energy program … But I think health care might suit him even better. And health care is a hot issue in which early leadership will quickly distinguish him from the other candidates: Especially from Romney, and even from Beacon Hill and Travaglini.
Mr. Patrick, there are still great seats available on the Health Care Access and Affordability Act bandwagon — Care to climb aboard? The ride’s a little bumpy, but it may well get you where you want to go …
