    What do you think of Deval Patrick, the Governor (D) of Massachusetts?

    Personally, I think he is a real lightweight as supposed Progressives go. He seems to run MA like one of the "good ol boys" of yore. Patronage galore (nothing new in MA). placing totally unqualified people in high positions as payback for their support (nothing new here either) and now passing over Barney Frank as interim Senator in favor of an unknown, powerless "friend" whose main qualifications seem to be, primarily - he is black, secondary - one of his "team players"!

    This is tantamount, in my opinion, of giving the "poor" Mitt Romney clone (Scott Brown) an invitation to rejoin the US Senate in the upcoming election.

    PGR, There is some feeling here that Duval is trying to give this man some exposure prior to having him run for governor......a hand picked successor. I think you read the Globe. Perhaps you saw the editorial today that said Duval should have picked Barney Frank. My thinking is that Duval wants to run for President. I've thought that since I heard him speak at the last convention.

    I read it! He thinks he wants to be the second Obama but he just doesn't have it! Hopefully he will fade away when his term is up because he represents the worst of the Dems, in my opinion!
