"If, 100 years from now, they look back at my election, I hope what they see is the beginning of a century of inclusive politics."

"Much like a cookie, I predict the Yankee dynasty will crumble and the results will be delicious for Red Sox fans."
--Mayor "Mumbles" Menino, during the 2004 Baseball Playoffs. My favorite Menino quote ever.
