Kerry Healey's future

Does she have one? In Massachusetts politics, I mean?

It's hard to think so. Healey's dour, angry, off-putting performance in last night's final debate was a fitting coda to her dour, angry, off-putting campaign. (Dan Kennedy has already said as much.) Not many people seem to like Healey these days, and even her fans say she's been a bad candidate.

Then again, maybe I'm being too hasty, as a former Healey apologist who's recanted with a vengeance. So what say you, readers? Could Healey make, say, a credible challenge for a congressional seat a few years down the road? Or--as a Democratic operative told me a few weeks back--will Jane Swift have a better chance at a political comeback than Healey after the votes are counted next week?
