Along with Amherst and P-Town, does not constitute the entire Democratic party in this state. There are these people called everyone else out there.

Please, please, please get this through your skulls. I am not being mean. I am just explaining that there is an electorate out there that doesn't consist of just the former customer base at Bertha Cool and Bella Luna.

Walsh would have won the Democratic Primary in a minute.

Sonia Chang (I needed a permit for that?) Diaz is as about electable statewide as polio.

Maura is the best remaining candidate to go up against that Eejit From Whitman but Walsh would have lost the convention but won the primary.

most people see him as a meathead. I voted for AEG for mayor, so don’t call me a progressive know nothing. I don’t grow my own food, compost, or listen to Cat Stevens.

Absolutely, but Marty doesn't have any particular name recognition among everyone else. "Former mayor of Boston who took a cabinet job but then came scampering back once Baker decided not to run" doesn't seem like a big selling point with "everyone else" (although your point is well taken that he's probably got plenty of pull with the Democratic Party establishment, which is a depressing thought).

Sorry, I forgot to put Northampton as another one of those places that people think everyone knows better than the "regular" folk.

See Above.

Walsh has huge statewide name recognition. If you don't think so, you must live in Northampton.

Sorry to disappoint, but no. I live in one of the many places where the statement that Walsh has "huge" name recognition could only be made by someone who's really unclear on how big six inches is.

I have to agree with this. For those of us living in Cambridge or out in Northhampton, its easy to forget there are 349 other towns across the commonwealth that aren't as progressive. In fact, head down to Oxford or Webster and you'll think you're in NH. But yea, Marty would of won the primary easy but I also dont think hes a great choice (that an a bad look leaving, then coming back)

I'm sure his tailpipe huffing addiction would play well in the hinterlands, no?

Being Governor in the post-Covid world is a shitty job and he'd have to get through a brutal primary. Don't blame him.

Stay there with that ineffectual hair-sniffing puppet geezer who should have had his clock cleaned in the primary if not for the complete doddering morons who form the populace of South Carolina.

From your comments, I seriously struggle to discern whether you are a left-winger or a right-winger. What are you?

Does anyone know what happened to him? He vanished the week the election was called in favor of Biden.

Did he succumb to COVID pre-vaccine?

But he did get real quiet at a time when I would have expected him to be especially loud.

Rush Limbaugh died just short of a year now, too. Coincidence? I think not!

He was an acceptable Mayor (he got my vote both times) but would be a terrible governor.

He presided over the BPDA and ZBA destroying what remained of real neighborhoods. Even though he is way way over his head at DOL, he can't do any real harm there. He took the job thinking he would be an advocate for union labor. He didn't have a clue about ERISA, OSHA, FLSA, BLS or any of the actual functions of the Department of Labor. He couldn't interpret a statute or regulation if they were presented in a coloring book.
