Skip to comments.Deval Patrick on the Biden ticket is key to Obama’s endorsement

President Obamas endorsement of a Joe Biden White House run will be conditional on having a final say over his choice for vice president, according to Ed Klein, author of the Hillary Rodham Clinton biography Unlikeable.
Barack Obama would like to see Deval Patrick, the former governor of Massachusetts and an African-American, run on the Biden ticket, Klein told John Catsimatidis on AM 970 radio Sunday.
Patrick, who served as assistant attorney general under then-President Bill Clinton, grew up in Chicago, Obamas former stomping grounds. He succeeded Mitt Romney as governor of Massachusetts.
Klein said that the first family is behind the Draft Joe Biden movement and that theyve given him permission to use Air Force Two to fly across the country promoting his possible presidential run to African-American groups, gays and unions.
Klein, the former foreign editor of Newsweek and former editor of The New York Times Magazine, has been one of the Clintons toughest critics. But he has accused the Obama administration and senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, specifically of throwing gasoline on the controversy surrounding Hillary Clintons computer servers and searching her expense recordings for discrepancies.
None of this would have taken place without the presidents approval, Klein said. Obama if he gave Biden his endorsement would ask for something in return . . . and what hes asked for is a say, a final say, in Bidens choice.

How long would Biden blast as President with Patrick as his VP?
Well, Coup d’ Val would probably try to live up to his nick name.
Deval was a fiscal disaster as a Governor. He’d be a great ticket share with Biden. Biden has got to know that he can’t win.
What’s his religion ? Just wondering....
Not being Hillary is enough to get Obamas endorsement, this just gives him cover.
A goofy clown from Delaware with an affirmative action gangsta from Taxachusetts as his running mate.
Is that a winning combination or what? I’ll bet they carry the whole South, including Florida and Texas. 400-450 EV, at *least*.
Good guess. I have been saying for years that they want a muslim to stay in charge, even as second in command, after the current muslim leaves.
So Biden will go along with this, then they steal the election, and after a few months Biden resigns, leaving things exactly as they are now, only worse because we are going off the cliff here. If that happens it will be another Obama term where only the person’s name has changed.
I doubt anyone would want his endorsement.
“If that happens it will be another Obama term where only the persons name has changed.”
If “Lil Barry” ever comes to power, the disaster that will result will have people referring to Obama’s reign as “The good old days”.
Here, uber-liberal Deval (then-Mass Gov) sap-happily applauds his new police chief---wearing her spiffy Commandant Herman Goerring uniform (not photoshopped).
Anybody know how to say versimilitude in German?
Deval Patrick got to be Gov of MASS because Willard refused to help the GOP lady who was Lt Gov to win..
No if its a moslem they want they would do better (or worse) with Ellison from MN..
Obama can’t handle the job he is paid to do but has plenty of time to spend trying to manipulate what others do.
Even once he is out of office we won’t be free of this incompetent, arrogant know-it-all.
He will be like the Clintons only 100 times worse.
People like them never go away.
They are always in the background cooking up some illegal, unethical, or immoral scheme.
>> How long would Biden last...?
One term. Then Patrick for two terms.
Kerry Healey was a non starter.
These people think DEM is in their DNA.
Stupid is a state held mindset for Massholes.
Hasn’t Biden already had one stroke in his brain?
