Meet Charlie Baker: The Man Destined to Become Our Next Governor
IN WORCESTER HE COULDN’T wait to wrap things up. Here, he keeps calling for “one last question,” and then taking another one. There’s no cheerleading to be done here, no babies to kiss or reporters to hassle with. It’s just Charlie Baker and his ideas for making government work. He’s come alive. And he’s got them howling.
Baker at last takes his final question, and then launches himself into the crowd, eagerly shaking hands. He’s glowing. Then a staffer in a corner starts in with Charlie! Charlie! The room picks up the call. As Charlie Baker looks around him, an embarrassed smile spreads across his face.
