My Case for Deval Patrick for President

I just read a note from John Walsh that Deval Patrick’s Holiday Party was a big success and I must admit that I do not think it could happen to a nicer person. I could not go as I did not have the money to buy my way in, but a great many people apparently could – and did. Deval is a special person to me. My son, Adam, drove for him when he was running the first time and Adam has some amusing stories to tell. I am hoping Deval takes the time at some point to run for the presidency. I think he has done an outstanding job as Governor, and deserves a chance to take the reins for awhile. I do not believe that he would be a patsy for the current president, but I do see where they would share some familiar characteristics.

People in Lowell may not agree with me on this one, the blogs are full of praise for Hilary Clinton, but I personally believe that Deval would be a better candidate. I am from Iowa and I would be happy to coordinate an effort in my home state. I have lived in Massachusetts for forty years, but I was born and raised in Iowa and, like all hometowns, it has a special meaniing for me. Do not get me wrong, I do not especially believe that the current occupant of the White House has made it easy for a Democrat to be elected President in the next election. But, if there was a man made for the task, I would say it has to be Deval Patrick.

When I first met Mr. Patrick, he came up to me and I said, “I am Adam’s father.” Each time I have seen him, I have said again that I am Adam’s father. The last meeting was during the state Issues Convention, in June, I believe. He came out a door, I was alone in the corridor, but I went over to say that I thought the past eight years have been genuine and nice. I started with “I am Adam’s father,” and he interrupted me and said, “I know who you are Jim.” I was sincerely surprised that of the millions of people he has living in this state, he would remember my name.

When he was once on national television for “48 Hours,” or a show like that, I cannot remember which one, he so impressed the audience that they were polled afterwards and someone stated that that was the man who should have been elected President. Seeing a certain stubborness in our current President, many in the audience seemed to agree with that person. I see Mr. Patrick as a great healer, and the fact that he lived a few miles from me when we were both growing up is not the reason that I believe he would be good in that office. I believe he would be good in that office because he knows how to compromise – a talent that seems to be lacking in the current White House.

We can blame John Boehner for all of our troubles, but the software indicates that all of our problems with Obamacare are not just a Republican problem. In fact, the Republicans who were so acerbic in their condemnation of the entire process and law, are looking alot better since the launching of the law. People are being written off by their insurance company. In my case, I incurred a three thousand dollar invoice for a heart test because I told the doctor that I had a pain going down my arm.. Without explanation, the insurance company rejected the doctor’s recommended procedure. I do not know if that is because of Obamacare, but it was the first time anything like that has ever happened to me. So I have to raise that money on a retired medical disability’s retirement fund. I do not know, again, if it had anything to do with the act, but it is a new one for me.

So I would like to see calmer hands on the wheel of the ship-of-state. I want to see Deval Patrick’s hands on that wheel. I believe that he would be a good President, that he was an outstanding Governor whom I strongly supported in both the original election and his re-election efforts. I believe in Deval Patrick, I do not know, or care to know, Hilary Clinton. We clearly have a number of good Democrats to choose from, and we should make our choices in the arena of public opinion.
