DiMasi is Gone

The Lowell Sun's right, DiMasi is going to be stepping down over the next few days. How'd the Sun get that scoop? Must have been a leak from someone in the Lowell-area delegation.

Any predictions on who wins the battle of the titans? My gut says DeLeo. Personally, I'd like to see a dark horse candidate emerge, rather than the stale and potentially ethically-challenged DeLeo/Rogers camps, mainly someone who doesn't support casinos, like Bosley or another powerful legislator, but I just don't think anyone else has the clout. Hopefully, in a few years, we'll see one of the progressive heroes of the legislature rise to that stature, but for now we're just going to have to be vigilant, ensuring Rogers and/or DeLeo don't get their way on any of their anti-progressive issues.

Ryan - FWIW, DeLeo is smart.

Rogers - not so much.

I'll keep that in consideration. LOL.
