As I wrote last week, the Clinton campaign botched it by alienating David Cicilline.
The mayor's in a difficult position, as Buddy Cianci pointed out today, since his headache with the firefighters will come with him if he were to throw his support to Obama.
Meanwhile, Scott MacKay reports today that Jack McConnell, treasurer of the RI Democratic Party, and someone close to Cicilline, stayed away from Clinton's Providence fundraiser yesterday ($100,000 raised) because of his pique over Cicilline having been disinvited.
McConnell is a bigfoot in RI, so this is not a good way to make friends and influence people amid a tight campaign.
Btw, speaking this morning on his show, John DePetro wondered why Elizabeth Roberts, considering her liberal profile, isn't with Obama. Might the answer be summed up in two letters (EL)?
