Landing on your feet ...
Congratulations to Drew O'Brien who was recently appointed as the state director for Sen. John Kerry, a presidential aspirant: ["Kerry's staff in Boston gets local flavor"].
O'Brien, who Boston Herald columnist Howie Carr deemed a "hack" and targeted during the last gubernatorial campaign, was an aide for both Treasurer Shannon O'Brien and before that, Boston Mayor Tom Menino. He recently did a pretty good job running Chris Gabrieli's campaign for lieutenant governor. O'Brien is a good strategist, and Kerry was smart to pick him up. And as everyone knows, win or lose, good hacks always land on their feet somewhere.
