NOT THAT BLUE:

For Patrick, to run or not? (Adrian Walker, February 7, 2005, Boston Globe)

Some people have told Deval Patrick that the hour is late already, that 19 months before a Democratic primary is awfully close to still be pondering whether or not to run for governor.

The question of whether Deval Patrick can win a governor's race is far into the future. The questions, for now, are simply whether the former assistant attorney general should run, or will run.

Settling into a banquette at the Parker House last week, he spoke eloquently about leadership in our state that he believes has failed to inspire.

''We have been invited to make a whole series of what I call false choices," he said. ''We have not been challenged by our leadership to think broadly about the job."


Asking MA Democrats to vote for a black man for governor would provide more entertainment value than even we could stand.

They'll ease their consciousness after the election by donating money to the "Obama in '08" presidential campaign...
