In this week's issue of the Boston Phoenix -- in print tomorrow, online now -- I look ahead to the fast-approaching 2014 race for Massachusetts governor.
If a Deval Patrick-style candidate is to emerge as an outsider, grassroots candidate, he or she would need to start laying the groundwork soon. And somewhat to my surprise, I find that an awful lot of insider, establishment Democrats -- worried about the prospects of the "A-List" candidates -- would very much like to see that happen.
But they also don't see anyone jockeying for that position, or very likely to successfully do so.
One reason (among many): there could be lots of other offices opening up to run for, depending on which A-Listers run for governor.
