The Advocate in a story this month speculates that Mayor Cicilline may have his eyes on Smith Hill. The article states Cicilline is, “(w)idely considered one of the state’s most viable gubernatorial candidates for 2010.”
I don’t like to stray too far into politics here, but seriously, is anyone a viable gubernatorial candidate in 2010? Does anyone even want to be Governor in 2010? It will be interesting to see how the Mayor handles the sh!tstorm of a budget proposal the current Governor is sending his way.
One thing’s for sure, the 2008 election cycle in RI was a bit of a snoozer, but the 2010 cycle should be crazy fun!
