The award for best timely metaphor of the year goes to Massachusetts Liberal for this sentence about the possible political aspirations of HPHC's CEO Charlie Baker: "And, just as spring is rumored to be around the corner, a political crocus is popping its head through the soil."
It is a long time to the next gubernatorial election in Massachusetts, but things start early around here! This could be interesting for both health care and state politics.
P.S. Charlie, as many know, is also a blogger, here. If he is going to run, he'll have to move to Twitter and Facebook, too, if the Obama campaign is any indication!
