Michael Dukakis’ final campaign
Politico - 09/03/2015
Throughout Michael’s nearly three decades in elected office, he was the star of the couple. He served a record three terms as governor of the commonwealth of Massachusetts; his one run for the presidency still haunts the Democratic Party as a winnable failure.
But now, nearly 25 years after he finished his third term as governor, it is Kitty who is drawing the crowds, Michael boasts in an interview with POLITICO in his office at Northeastern University, where he teaches political science. He says he was struck by the role reversal at a fundraising dinner for a Cambridge health care association in April, where they were both given an award for their contributions to universal access to health care and reducing the stigma of mental illness.
