Would it be Scott Brown? Congressmen Markey or Capuano? Tell us who you think should run.
The Washington Post is reporting that President Obama is considering appointing Massachusetts U.S. Sen. John Kerry as the Secretary of Defense. There was speculation Kerry would become the next Secretary of State. Either way Kerry's move to possibly become a member of Obama's cabinet will open up his current seat. Should he be appointed, a special election would be held to finish out Kerry's term, which expires in 2014. Conversation from the breakfast table this morning to the morning commute has everyone talking - who will run for Kerry's U.S. Senate seat if he's appointed? Could it be Scott Brown? Or maybe Congressmen Ed Markey or Michael Capuano? Only time will tell, but we know you're talking about it. So tell us, who do you think …

Lang, a Jamaica Plain resident since 1977, showed him off as he sat quietly in the middle of the auditorium stage of the English High School, where voting for Ward 11, Precincts 7 & 8 took place. Bundled in her jacket and fleece cap, she turned back after casting her vote, and called “Heel,” to which the show-dog sprung up and returned to her side. The poll workers looked up and quietly smiled at the elderly voter and her dog as they left the ballot area, then returned to their work. There were no other voters in the station. “Reelecting the president!” Lang said, was the most …
