Couldn't agree more. For reasons I don't fully understand, the Globe has become the Niki Fan Club and thinks she is the greatest thing since sliced bread, as evidenced by several of these absolutely gushing pieces.

In my view, this race has numerous striking similarities to 1998, which bears well for my candidate, Jamie Eldridge. Four of the five candidates are from the northern part of the district (which is also where two-thirds of the population is). Jamie is the only candidate from the south. While the candidates will rightly fight over the the northern cities, if Jamie can do in the south what Capuano did in Somerville (get 50-55%) and do respectably in the Lowells, Methuens, and Haverhills, he will win in a low-turnout-primary.

Being in Boston, Lehigh should remember that Ray Flynn had 100% name recognition in most of the district and still lost. Now, while Niki doesn't have Ray's baggage, she has her own issues. This race is wide-open, especially considering the uncertain turnout. The Globe and others should, in the words of Bill Parcells, "put the annointing oil away."

Ah. Well. The best organized candidate may well be Col. Jim Ogonowski.
