We give oneWe'll  last look at next week's general election, a bit national and a lot of Massachusetts. Polls and paper endorsements favor failed gubdernatorial candidate GOP Charlie Baker oer failed US Senate candidate Dem Martha Coakley. Neither is all that exciting to the eye or ear, but media types love the angle of each has blown a run at a big office before.

We'll kick around the insdious fantasy that serems to propel Republicans into the top ofice here. That is because a vast majortiy of elected officials are Dems, somehow putting a Republican in that office does, well, somethnkg substantive. That's crazy talk, but they love it here. Baker is seriously flawed. Yet many,including the editorial board of the largest paper, trip over themsleves in efforts to make excuses for him.

We may touch on why locals are loath to (asi n never) elect a woman governor and so far have only sent one woman to the US Senate.

We may surmise what a Baker or Coakley administration might do and not do.
