Too bad we will never know. Judging from his performance in Massachusetts however I cant see how. He increased employment by 1% vs the national av of 5.3%. Increased taxes by 1100 per preson raised business taxes to one of the highest in the nation, signed a ban on assault weapons , spent 212 days out of state in his last year of office running for President, Vetoed 890 bills and was overridden more than 700 times but he had one real and lasting bi partisan accomplishment--Universal Healthcare.
