Right: The Boston Globe has this bit on Robert Reich ’68, labor secretary under Clinton and Mass governor candidate:

Reich, the former US labor secretary, has been telling interviewers recently that he moved back to Massachusetts in 1997 with no intention of running for office, and that the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks sparked his interest in the governor’s race. But that account ignores a bit of his personal history. The Globe reported as early as 1999 that he was meeting with associates to discuss a run for governor in 2002. “I am on the fringes, sniffing around,” Reich told the Globe three years ago.
