    I had to go to Boston in Oct. 1988 for a training course, and I wanted to share these two observations that I made at the time.   One, and this is less than 30 days before the election they were hardly any Dukasis yard signs visible, and this was in his home state.

    Secondly, as I made the observation about the yard signs  to the cab driver who was driving me from Logan Airport to downtown, he added, "And last week, I had Kitty Dukakis in my cab ---- she's a real bitch!".   I knew at that point that Dukaksis was going to get creamed.  If a Massachusetts Democrat can't get the support of a Boston cab driver, he or she isn't going to win.
