Cambridge is certainly a great place to live, as would be Northampton, or San Francisco. I always feel right at home when in these cities, and the biggest benefit is not having to put up with the mindless conservatives. If I was to win, I would buy stock in worms way, and open up the largest medical marijuana dispensary Millbury's ever seen.

If I win, I will pay off my 2 sons' college debts, pay off my house or just buy a great apartment in Harvard Square and retire there so I can enjoy the best cultural opportunities around. Nothing like walking the streets of Harvard Square, Cambridge, going to lectures, enjoying great company...using public transportation...heaven!
