Elizabeth Warren, the cigar-store Indian from Cambridge, will win the Democratic Party convention endorsement for the U.S. Senate on Saturday, but it could be something of a mixed victory.
Rather than an outright coronation, Warren, the undocumented Cherokee, will have to beat the only remaining Democrat opposing her for the party convention endorsement. That is Marisa DeFranco.
Handily defeating DeFranco at the Springfield gathering of several thousand delegates to the convention will be no problem for Warren. She is backed by President Barack Obama, Hollywood and the liberal establishment here, there and everywhere, and she has raised millions of dollars in campaign contributions.
The problem for Warren is that if DeFranco gets the required 15 percent of the delegate vote, as expected, DeFranco will appear on the September Democratic primary ballot along with Warren for the party nomination

Don’t count her out. Democrtic voters have shown time and again that they vote for the sleaziest, criminally backed candidates that are available. Look at marion barry, bwaney fwank, and charlie rangel.

This is for the Ted Kennedy seat. How did you overlook him?

THE Marisa DeFranco, the keyboardist for the '70s Pop Sensation De Franco Family, featuring Tony DeFranco?
I think Marisa is second from the right.
The DeFranco Family Genres Bubblegum pop, The DeFranco Family featuring Tony DeFranco was a 1970s pop music group and family from Port Colborne, Ontario, Canada. The group, all siblings, consists of Benny DeFranco (born 11 July 1953), the guitarist; Marisa DeFranco (born 23 July 1954), the keyboardist; Nino DeFranco (born 19 October 1955), the second guitarist; Merlina DeFranco (born 20 July 1957), the drummer; and Tony DeFranco (born 31 August 1959), the lead singer.

Too young. The Marisa DeFranco in this story graduated law school in 1996.

It’s kind of like that 3 way (G, B, U) Mexican-Gun Fight.
You really don’t love any of them, but if we have to we pick Scott Brown. Just want the other two to kill each other off. When one starts to win leverage you switch suport to the other (Warren or DeFranco)!

My sister had that album. Fit right in with her groovy collection of Bobby Sherman, The Monkees and Partridge Family albums.

I remember the DeFranco Family well. My sister had all their records and thought they were going to take over the world. "Bigger than the Beatles" is what I remember her saying. Of course, she had already said that about The Osmonds and The Cowsills. She would soon be saying it about The Bay City Rollers.
She had a portable record player something like this...
