Clarence Page suggests Deval Patrick may be a bridge to draw voters to a moderate ticket.
His resume is a pretty good. Private business experience as a legal partner, and now as managing director of Bain Capital, Romney’s stomping grounds.
And he has executive branch credentials from a major state as governor of Massachusetts. A state that has the precursor to ACA as passed with Romney.
My feeling is that “eyes on the prize”, Congress and the White House, is more critical than campaigning on huge changes in a government that people already have low confidence in.
I don’t know what skeletons he has stored in the closet, but I am sure people on the right, and even the hard left, will help us find some, real or imagined.
