Dukakis the Great
by

In a post that otherwise nails the political logic of appointing Paul Kirk to fill Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat on an interim basis, E.J. Dionne seems a bit wistful about their being no Senator Michael Dukakis: “[Dukakis] was actually a very good governor. He is smart about health care. He’s fun to talk policy with — for those who find talking about policy fun. He is a thoroughly decent and honest person.”

Well. I agree that Dukakis is wonkier than your average pol, and is a decent and honest person. But, as you might guess from my column on the main site today, I think even “mediocre governor” would be a stretch, much less “very good governor.”
