Steve Laffey, We Hardly Knew Ya!

It appears that the former Cranston mayor and unsuccessful Senate Reublican primary candidate has had enough of politics for now, to the dismay of Republicans and others who feel he would be the best person in the governor's chair for the next four years. Alas, Steve Laffey is not biting.

Presumably Laffey remains of the opinion that the state political leadership is not ready to forge ahead, under his direction, to save our sinking ship of state. He's undoubtebly right about that, which makes his just announced decision to stay on the sidelines such a disappointment. We could really use him at this critical time.

Here's hoping he'll reconsider; there's still time left. What do you think?
