Carpet-Bagger Reruns

AP’s Marc Humbert got Steve Minarik to raise the carpet-bagger issue again, in a conversation about Hillary’s plans to deliver a speech about job creation tonight in Chicago.

“She’s quite at home there,” Minarik said. “Do I need to say anything else? You can fill in all the rest, about how perhaps she can help create jobs in her hometown as opposed to here in New York state where she hasn’t done anything.”

Wolfson points out to Humbert, less interestingly, that lots of New Yorkers are from elsewhere. (Really?) Including William Weld. (Ah, there you go, Howard.)

Wait a minute. Weld is from New York. So maybe he was a carpet-bagger when he became governor of Massachusetts?
