    Sunday July 26. Today is my birthday.///Whether this means much depends on Tim Cahill’s political ideology. If he is a dem or rep bucking the party system, not much. If he is a radical of some sort, that could be interesting! By the way, I think Deval Patrick was the next up in Massachusetts Mischief & Mayhem Maker’s Camelot Revisited Plan; in case Obama didn’t work out.

    Cahill is a “fiscally conservative” Democrat. At least that’s his reputation.

    Mattc, well that is very logical. In that case he is a Blue Dog demo bucking the liberal lock on Mass politics.

    ….no. Why dont you just fully fill out your name first? That’s the 3rd time Iv seen you do that in 24 hours.

    I looked at the whole poll, and Gov. Patrick has very high negatives, while Treasurer Cahill has more positive than negative responses from people polled.

    In particular, the Governor is not popular among Independent voters, who are the largest block in Massachusetts.

    This looks like a very good possibility for an Indepedent victory in 2010.

    Gene, yeah but…if he is a Blue Dog dem, maybe he is a stranger in a strange land but not a “real” Independent. No more than Lieberman.
