    Reilly has nothing to do with it and I don't see the conection.  He is irrelevant to this diary and the election.  He is a burned out politician whose time is past.  10 years ago he might have been a real candidate but not now.  His popullist agenda rang hollow and he lacked any political flair.  He would have been destroyed by Healy in the general election.

        I've been following politcs since I was about 5 years old...not by choice mind you.  My dad is a political junkie.  It doesn't take a degree to figure stuff out although my degree is in US history.  Also, I grew up in Upstate New York, which is right next to MA.  I lived though Willie Hornton and I follow presidential politics closely as well.  My first taste was Mondale getting run over by a Ronald Reagan freight train in the '84 election.  I don't pretend to know politcs that I don't know.  As opposed to trying to nit pick meaningless points why don't you offer relevant information that might create a meaningful dialouge.  Do you have anything to offer to contradict  my statement about Reilly?  I'm curious and want to learn more.  Bingo that!
