I Had a Dream

No sooner had John Kerry won re-election than he refused to rule out the possibility he might give up his Senate seat for a position in the Obama administration.As icing on the cake, we figured there had to be some low level job in the new administration that would be appropriate for our hapless Governor, Deval Patrick. Deval, after all, is a stable-mate of Barack's.He also broadened his definition of service to Massachusetts, suggesting he could provide it whether he was one of the state's U.S. senators or held some other post under President-elect Barack Obama.
In 2006, Axelrod consulted for several campaigns, including for the successful campaigns of Eliot Spitzer in New York's gubernatorial election and for Deval Patrick in Massachusetts's gubernatorial election.So, while the election of Barack might have been a tragedy to those who believe in the U.S. Constitution, we figured we'd get our payback with the relief we'd be given from Deval and Kerry. Now, however, the Secretary of State position has been given to Hillary, and the chances of Deval being sent to Washington seem weaker each day. It turns out that Barack is a good judge of talent, at least so far as staying away from the liberals from Massachusetts, and for this, I must, commend him. Sad as the whole thing makes me.
