‘Andrea obviously had a different agenda,’ Part II: Tom Keane
has an outstanding piece on Andrea Cabral’s decision to switch parties. I didn’t know she’ll probably face at-large Boston City Councilor Stephen Murphy in the Democratic primary. I assumed part of the deal included giving her a free pass through the primary. ... Unless Dems use their ‘resources’ to convince Murphy not to run, Cabral could well be a goner -- after Dems use her as a walking photo-op for diversity at the 2004 Convention. ... Repeat
: Dems never would have appointed her to the job had she been a registered Democrat. One of the boys would have gotten it. Now it looks like one of them will. ... Mitt sure sounds like he blew it, according to Tom.
... Saw Cabral on Emily Rooney’s ‘Greater Boston’
the other night, whining about lack of ‘dialogue’ and ‘relationship building’ and ‘signals’ and ‘access to resources’ -- and you’d think you were watching a Dr. Ruth show. ... No mention of the ‘promise’ she broke.
