BOSTON — Hundreds of people turned out to hear Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren at a Boston University rally on Saturday.

Warren shared the stage with Gov. Deval Patrick and Rep. Michael Capuano, who represents parts of Boston, Cambridge and Somerville.

Capuano emphasized Boston’s importance in Warren’s race against Sen. Scott Brown. He told the crowd that if Warren wins the city with at least 60 percent of the vote, some people will say she did well.

“But for those of us who pay attention, that’s the road to a defeat. We need to walk out of this neighborhood with 65, 70, 75 percent of the vote, like we always do,” Capuano said.

In any campaign, local politicians always want to see more of the candidate. Some Boston politicians have expressed frustration that Warren has not been campaigning enough in the city.

    If your interested in a senator that votes for the people versus the corporations, vote for Warren.

    People always say that politicians are greedy for power, and corrupt. Now is the time to change that.

    Enough already. Shame on BUR for continuing this self serving commentary, a complete diversion from issues and also the vision that is offered by DEMOCRAT Elizabeth Warren vs the empty words offered by her REPUBLICAN (Independent = Ineffective) opponent.

    I suspect that the political commentators writing for this column are asking their own friends, sisters and wives for comments…..those friends, sisters and wives who are such ardent, first time political devotees who wanted first time candidate Elizabeth Warren to jump across the starting line against a seasoned incumbent politician, expecting Elizabeth to have a double digit lead. And when that double digit lead didn’t happen by March 1st, those so ardent devotees started to get nervous with the methodical building of a grass roots campaign.

    Did you see Scott Brown’s hair yesterday? And how about all that weight that Gail has lost during the last three or four months? I FOR ONE, Don’t want to hear another word about irrelevant stuff. Oh, by the way no one saw Scott yesterday, because he is busy prepping trying to pull off a well rehearsed, oh so charming first debate.
