While taking on the somber role of interviewing Democratic primary candidates based on substance and character, the Globe editorial board also had some fun reflecting on what superlatives we’d award each candidate we met (and also those we didn’t meet) if they were in our high school yearbooks.
Most likely to have a jam band perform at the Democratic National Convention.
Most likely to already have a plan when her friends ask her if she has plans.
Most likely to charm someone’s grandfather at a seder.
Most likely to comb through policy papers on her way to get a salad.
Most likely to say "I wasn’t late for the 2020 race; I was just early for 2024.”
Most likely to go out for a beer with you — especially if it’s trivia night.
Most likely to overstay his welcome at a dinner party while wearing that snazzy red plaid tie.
Most likely to play for the Patriots. Oh, wait: that’s Michael Bennett.
Most likely to be praying for a brokered convention.
Most likely to become a Republican.
Most likely to retire in South Carolina.
