The World Series is not the only event shining the national spotlight on Boston today. President Obama will soon take the stage at Fanueil Hall, the same venue where former governor Mitt Romney signed this state’s revolutionary health reform law in 2006.

The president is expected to underscore the success of the Massachusetts healthcare program that served as the template for the Affordable Care Act, in a move to temper criticism about the national law’s rocky roll-out.
