John McCain plans to aggressively compete in Republican presidential rival Mitt Romney's Massachusetts, a bold move that reflects a deep desire not just to beat the former Massachusetts governor but bury him in his own backyard.Will McCain embarrass Romney (who has put his sweat, money and tears in this campaign) or will Romney make the biggest comeback since ...hell, John McCain. Don't know for sure, yet by the end of next week, the GOP ticket will be clear.
The Arizona senator will pick up the endorsement of former Gov. Paul Cellucci on Saturday, run radio ads in the state, and campaign in Boston on Monday. Another of the state's former governors, Jane Swift, also will make appearances on his behalf over the weekend, and volunteer phone calls will begin. McCain secured the endorsements of The Boston Globe and the Boston Herald weeks ago
The Democratic ticket is a toss up right now between Clinton and Obama. The new vision of liberalism versus the old, the message of results versus the message of hope. After a respectable debate just the other day on CNN, both tried to give the impression they deserve the nomination. Some are even considering the duo to be so great, that a ticket with both of them would do the country well. We'll see.
Next week will be interesting.
