BOSTON (CBS) – As I was saying, there’s nothing as informative in a political campaign as a lively debate, and last night’s showdown between Senate candidates Gabriel Gomez and Ed Markey certainly fit the bill.
Let’s start with the good news for both men. They came in with clear game plans, positive talking points about themselves and attack points on their opponent, and they delivered them, early and often.
I think I have this straight – Gabriel Gomez is a straight-shooting, bi-partisan, independent moderate who understands business (his version) and/or a duplicitous, uncaring tool of backward right-wingers (Markey’s version.) Markey is equally complex, a combination of statesmanlike defender of the people (in his telling) and ancient hack (Gomez’s version).
