In this week's issue of the Boston Phoenix -- in print
tomorrow, online now -- I write about the discomfort many state
Democratic insiders feel about Guy Glodis becoming, potentially, the
party's candidate for state Auditor.
Glodis has a history of being
on the wrong side of a lot of core liberal issues, like gay marriage,
and of making comments considered offensive by many of those same libs.
And yet, with the party's state convention coming in a little over a
week, almost nobody is drawing attention to those criticisms -- and
Glodis is increasingly seen as the likely primary winner.
the silence of the left? Fear? Spinelessness? Disinterest in his
competitors? Or perhaps, do they suspect -- as Glodis himself does --
that what they don't like about him is exactly what makes him their best
bet to win Scott Brown voters in November?

Glodis enters the Democratic state convention unscathed
