The line about Romney in 2008 on this was: “people won’t vote for someone who reminds them of their boss”.

The other part is how Massachusetts is ‘over-represented’ in presidential politics because of the bounce the Mass candidates get from New Hampshire primary. Since 1988. you have Dukakis (1988), then Paul Tsongas (1992 winner), then John Kerry (2004), now Mitt.

We all know that there is nothing inherently talented about Mass politicians — just the opposite.

Correct! Mass is a small area of the NE and the population is rather homogenous. I used to spend a lot of time in Mass and was impressed that such nice people could be so wrong politically.
