It’s now three weeks Boston Mayor Tom Menino’s been in the hospital with a Whitman’s Sampler of symptoms, and not surprisingly, political maneuvering is the order of the day (although anyone who bets against Menino running again doesn’t really care about his money).
According to the Boston Herald, it’s all hijinks and shenanigans down at City Hall. Via the Newseum’s Today’s Front Pages:
Seems a bit hyperventilating to the hardreading staff, but that’s nothing new for the feisty local tabloid. Nor is the double coverage from bookend columnists . . .

What odds are you offering in a wager on whether or not Hizzoner stands for reelection in 2013?
Plenty of 8-5 he does.
Offer me 2-1, and we’ll have a deal: my $25 to the charity of your choice against your $50 to the charity of my choice.
Event: preliminary municipal election (if it happens in September) otherwise municipal election in November. If Menino is on the ballot and has not told people not to vote for him (i.e., if he unsuccessfully tried to pull out after the ballot is finalized in July), then you win. Otherwise, I win. If there is a special election earlier than that to fill his vacancy, then I also win.
Fair enough, Mike. Talk to you next year.
