Deval Patrick for Supreme Court? Deval Patrick for a Cabinet Appointment?

This morning, Patrick told a group of business leaders, “I’m not going anywhere,” but that hasn’t stopped speculation surrounding a move to Washington, D.C., for Patrick, Obama campaign ambassador, world traveler, and Massachusetts governor. Jerry Mileur, UMass Amherst political science professor emeritus, told the Herald that if Obama wins in November “… an appointment in Washington is a reasonable thing to speculate about. But I think it’s more likely to be a Cabinet position, since a Supreme Court position might be too controversial.” [Herald | Globe]
