Damning Comparisons

Y'know, the thing that really damns Kerry Healey isn't the comparisons you can draw between her and the Democratic candidates. It's the fact that if you stack her up against the candidates for *Lieutenant* Governor (a pair of self-made women like herself, so it invites the comparison), she's still clearly the lesser candidate.

I'm just boggled that they've brought back the ads that make her look like a housewife. Daughter of a war hero, put herself through school, supported her family for a while, etc -- yes, it's all lovely stuff. But it has nothing to do with the job. Are there really demographics for whom this is a winning pitch? It's possible, but I'd be surprised...
