I understand that Steve Pagliuca has some serious ground to make up if he's going to win the Democratic US Senate primary. I also understand that the Celtics' recent return to NBA championship status is a feather in Pagliuca's cap. Still, is bringing the NBA trophy on Pagliuca's "Jobs Express" bus really necessary? Or helpful? Or anything other then mega-dorky?
If you read today's Globe write-up of Steve Pagliuca's US Senate campaign kickoff, you know that the former would-be Globe owner's past donations to Republicans--including Mitt Romney--are going to be a campaign issue:
Pagliuca said he had donated to and
backed Romney’s candidacy out of personal loyalty, because Romney had
hired him at Bain Capital in 1989 and was a personal friend.
