  •  William Weld is a good guy actually (1+ / 0-)

    I actually like Weld although for the sake of keeping the U.S. Senate in Democrats' hands, I wouldn't support him.

    However, Weld has been an Obama supporter and also a liberal Republican, near the Lincoln Chafee mold (although Chafee is now an Independent).  After John Kerry defeated Weld in a closely watched race in 1996, Kerry actually became friends with Weld and even supported him on a matter at some point (I forget which).

    On the other hand, I think Weld's political days are about over.  I don't see how he'd become a factor, unless the Republican Party wanted to branch out and be more inclusive, which ain't gonna happen now that Prince "Idiot Jerk" Priebus is a shoo-in for re-election to Chairman of the Republican National Committee.
