Turning to the local, "Noah" asks via email:
A) Are you ready to say that Menino won't run again? B) Assuming he doesn't, who do you think will run/win?
I am certainly NOT ready to say that. I think Menino wants to run again, and perhaps intends to run again; the question is whether he and Angela ultimately feel he is physically up to the challenge of campaigning -- which might depend on whether he gets serious challengers.
On the second part, if Menino doesn't run for re-election....
Who will run? EVERYBODY.
Who will win? I don't know, but for now I'm sticking with Robbie Consalvo, who I've had ranked number one for a long time now despite quite a few naysayers. DON'T UNDERESTIMATE THE HYDE PARK HYDRA!
