"Your Family, Your Governor, Your Future" does so cut to the heart of the necessity of all Massachusetts families to support the leader (and us).
"The Right Kind of Change" does seem beautifully close to that classic Barry Goldwater slogan, "In Your Heart You Know He's Right". Ah, such memories!

During the campaign, various Healey volunteers dressed in orange jumpsuits and pretended to be "Inmates for Deval Patrick". The young man in the center of this photo was recruited into playing one of the prisoners outside the first debate in Faneuil Hall. He simply loves making ordinary Americans angry, he said, especially when he is 'right'.
We do so agree, although we are perplexed as to why we need to spend our own billions to speak power to truth whilst this young man did not. Hmmmmmm.

Since Lee was already zombified, we decided to perambulate back to the Healey party, but found the room empty except for technicians breaking down AV equipment. What happened, Muffy?!
