Hillary Clinton will appear at several events in Boston today. If you can keep your voice from cracking, you can go to the Clinton campaign HQ in Dorchester to make calls for the candidate. Just be sure you bring your own phone. But tread with caution—Sen. Clinton was rooting for the Giants.

Illinois Sen. Barack Obama will appear at the World Trade Center this evening with a cadre of local pols like Gov. Deval Patrick and Sen. Ted Kennedy.
