DescriptionBoston Globe article.

An excerpt...
"DOES TOM REILLY really want to be governor of Massachusetts?

Lapses in judgment call his desire into question -- and his fitness for the job of chief executive.

As attorney general, Reilly never had charisma but he cultivated the appearance of competence. As a gubernatorial candidate, he shows neither.

On Tuesday, Reilly was standing in a Dorchester youth center promoting his choice of Marie St. Fleur, a Haitian immigrant and state representative from Boston, as his surprise running mate. Yesterday, the Globe reported that St. Fleur is delinquent on taxes and loans. By the end of the day, she was out of the race.

A decision that was supposed to make Reilly look bold reduced him, again, to bumbling."
