‘Look for Obama to campaign for Deval …'
Brighton Reader called it
: Obama is riding
to Deval’s rescue. … The only question now: How many times will Obama come to Massachusetts for Deval over the next year? The betting pool starts. I say three times, in addition to next week -- once during the slow winter/spring months, once during the summer (Tanglewood/Martha’s Vineyard) and another one right around this time next year. … Tie breaker: Does Obama parachute in during the last week of the campaign? Hmmm. Obama will have his hands full next fall with Congressional races. Answer: No.Update
-- Outraged Liberal
Given the double-barreled dose of bad (economic) news, Deval Patrick could be forgiven if he cancelled plans for his Oct. 23 fundraiser with Barack Obama and retreated into a corner at Sweet Pea Farm and sucked his thumb for the next year. The Massachusetts economy is in the tank and likely to get worse before it gets better.Update II
-- Brighton Reader goes with two more visits -- "one to raise money, the second for a campaign event."
