Patrick Says He Won't Quit Job For Role In Obama 2nd Term

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick is insisting he will serve out his current term and not leave to take a job in the Obama administration.  WAMC”s Paul Tuthill reports

Governor Patrick, who served as a campaign surrogate for his friend the president, was asked Tuesday night what role he might play in the second Obama term.

Patrick said Massachusetts Senator John Kerry is a great senator and would make a terrific secretary of state. But Patrick said it is  wild speculation that Obama will appoint Kerry to succeed Hillary Clinton.
