LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR: LIZ ROBERTS. She brings enough to the table to demonstrate that the job can, indeed, be important. Bob Healey is a great talent and a good guy but, if he wins, we see nothing but protracted legal battles and stasis for the next four years with, in the end, a strong likelihood of no change at all.

ATTORNEY GENERAL: CHRIS LITTLE. Exactly what the doctor ordered for cleaning up egregious behavior and enforcing those pesky, neglected little things called "laws" and "ethics."

SECRETARY OF STATE: CATHERINE TAYLOR. Mollis has done a good job, but the Nawt Providence noir Ralphie represents is too ominous a shadow. Ms. Taylor has the talent, creativity, and determination to do the job — without the baggage.

GENERAL TREASURER: GINA RAIMONDO. Compare her work with Frank Caprio's after she's in for one year. It will be an eye-opener.

CONGRESS FIRST DISTRICT: DAVID "LITTLE CHI-CHI" CICILLINE. Sure, he's ambitious, but he's smart, tough, and (oh, we almost forgot) "he's a sweetheart."

CONGRESS SECOND DISTRICT: JIM LANGEVIN. Just broaden those policy horizons a bit, Jimbo.
