Cheney coming to Boston--what will Healey do?

The Mass. GOP announced yesterday that (Vice) President Cheney is coming to town on Friday, September 8, for a fete honoring local Republican bigwig Dick Egan.

Sadly, the event--which starts at 5 p.m., at the Harvard Club on Comm. Ave.--is closed to the press. But it'll be very interesting to see if Kerry Healey shows up, and how she comports herself if she does. Whichever Democrat runs against Healey this fall would love to link her to the misadventures of Bush & Co. That'll be way easier to do if they've got snapshots of Cheney and Healey smiling happily together, or quotes of Healey saying nice things about the veep. But if you're Healey, how do you tactfully blow off the first- or second-most-powerful Republican in the country?

Here's my prediction: Kerry and Sean go on vacation that weekend, but Kerry videotapes some nice comments about Egan beforehand.
