How did the son of the moderate from Massachusetts, who last week claimed he had little input on what his campaign only two months ago was calling the Romney Massachusetts Health Care Reform Plan (which kept in place state-funding for abortions), get such prime sitting? “We have a supporter who helped do the seating, and he made sure we got what we wanted,” says a campaign insider. “At one time we wanted the governor to be there, but we pulled back from that.”
It was announced ten days ago that Romney would in fact be at the breakfast, but then the campaign quickly pulled back. One reason? Concern that Flip the Dolphin might show up. The walking, talking six-foot dolphin has made the Romney campaign’s life an aquatic nightmare, reminding the media and supporters of the candidate’s all too well-known flip-flops.p> POLITICAL FOOTBALL br> In Massachusetts politics, it’s all about king-making and less than sincere posturing. Just days after announcing his retirement last month, Rep. Marty Meehan declared that he could not endorse any of the Democrats interested in filling his seat (he feels his role as chancellor of a UMass campus rules that out), his wife, Ellen, endorsed Niki Tsongas (D), the widow of former senator Paul Tsongas , and further announced that she would chair her campaign. /p>
Mrs. Meehan denied that her involvement was a tacit endorsement by her husband. And then she added that — surprise — the Meehans were looking into whether any of the more than $5 million in the congressman’s campaign war chest could be used to “defray” costs of the special election.
