I swear I’ll start posting more regularly soon. It’s kinda of hard to concentrate with a non-stop parade of news helicopters hovering overhead…

Yvonne Abraham on Sunday summed up nicely the political year that could have been if Obama had picked John Kerry for Secretary of State, and not Hillary Clinton. Depending on who had won the special election, we could have been looking at a solid of years of primaries and campaigns. Nothing loike political ambition to liven up a political scene! Oh well!

Senate Minority Leader Richard Tisei has issued his list of demands that Gov. Patrick must consider before proposing a gas tax. It’s a reasonable, well-thought out list, such as freezing all new commuter rail expansion, and looking at public/private partnerships. I guess it would have more impact if there weren’t more video cameras than Republicans in the Senate chamber.

David Kravitz at Blue Mass. Group says Mitt Romney should go work his magic at GM. It’s an interesting dare. Mitt likes to paint himself as a corporate turnaround artist, and needs to dump the “former Massachusetts governor” preface for something more Republican, such as, “General Motors CEO.’ Of course, if he fails, he looks incompetant and destroys any future political career he may have.
