    I have it on good authority that the Healey camp expects to pull off an upset.

    ...

    Just kidding! Seriously, at this point, all I can tell you is that David Bernstein and I will be hangin' with Kerry Healey and Deval Patrick tonight--in that order, thank goodness--and offering our reports later this evening. We'll also be weighing in on what goes down in this Battle for Congress that all the kids are talking about.

    The following interview with Jill Stein--the Green-Rainbow candidate for secretary of state, and the 2002 Green-Rainbow gubernatorial candidate--took place last Thursday, a couple days after Stein received an unexpected flurry of newspaper endorsements and one day before Stein's sixteen-minute debate with incumbent Democrat Bill Galvin

    [Guest blogging: David S. Bernstein]

    Sandra Reavis was attacked Wednesday night, but not by a creepy stranger in a dimly lit parking garage. She was allegedly stabbed to death by her husband in their Dorchester home, a far more common scenario. Indeed, we have a virtual epidemic this year of women being killed by men they know, if Kerry Healey is interested.

    Something I should have mentioned in my story this week, but didn't: the Herald got the better of the Globe when it came to blogging the governor's race. As a rule, the Herald's Daily Briefing--written mostly by reporter Kim Atkins--was A) more substantial and B) a better read than the Globe's Political Intelligence, a team effort led by political editor David Dahl.

    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

    Does the Muffster really believe this stuff? From an AP story that ran this afternoon:

    He gets the lede--over Harold Ford!--in a story on how race is/isn't impacting the '06 elections.

    Expect a lot more of this in the coming months.

    Also, the New Republic's recent piece on Patrick is worth a read, too, even though it's a bit credulous. (What is this Republican "machine" Patrick is supposed to be slaying, exactly?)

    Look, you can say John Kerry's stupid "stupid" joke was supposed to be about George Bush. But arguing that Kerry's handling of the post-joke ruckus could somehow help Democrats? Charley, I agree with you 90-plus percent of the time, but that strikes me as incredibly far-fetched.

    Jon Keller thinks Kerry can kiss 2008 goodbye if this debacle ends up hurting the Democrats in the midterms.
