To be or not to be for fellow Democrat Elizabeth Warren and her effort to unseat Republican Senator Scott Brown? That is the question for the Hamlet of City Hall.
Mayor Menino has yet to endorse a candidate in this nationally watched political blockbuster, and has been sending mixed signals ever since Warren got into the race. A year ago, Menino was calling Brown unbeatable and publicly questioned whether Warren would be marketable. A year later, he is now telling reporters that his endorsement decision will come very shortly; he is just waiting for the proper time. He remained noncommittal in Charlotte, where he and Warren both addressed delegates to the Democratic National Convention.
