This sure seems out of left field, Deval Patrick is jumping in (and it's dEval, not dUval, made that mistake):
Deval Patrick Will Enter 2020 Presidential Race on Thursday
Mr. Patrick, the former two-term governor of Massachusetts, called several leading Democrats and allies to say that he would announce his bid for the White House.
By Jonathan Martin Nov. 13, 2019 Updated 7:34 p.m. ET

NEW ORLEANS — Former Gov. Deval Patrick of Massachusetts told senior Democrats Wednesday that he will enter the presidential race, according to two party officials, reversing his decision last year to forgo a run and adding yet more volatility to an unusually fluid Democratic primary.

Mr. Patrick will enter the race Thursday morning and head to New Hampshire’s State House to file paperwork to be a candidate on the primary ballot there, according to a Democrat familiar with his plans. Mr. Patrick was calling a list of party leaders Wednesday to inform them of his decision and is planning to begin his campaign with a video and new website.

After appearing in New Hampshire, Mr. Patrick will head to California, which is voting in early March, and then go on to three early nominating states: Nevada, Iowa and South Carolina.

Deval Patrick
Former Governor of Massachusetts
Deval Laurdine Patrick is an American politician, civil rights lawyer, author, and businessman who served as the 71st Governor of Massachusetts, from 2007 to 2015. He was first elected in 2006, succeeding Mitt Romney who chose not to run for reelection. Wikipedia
Born: July 31, 1956 (age 63 years), Chicago, IL
Spouse: Diane Patrick (m. 1984)
Education: Harvard College, Milton Academy, Harvard Law School, Harvard University

Back to 2016 when we were talking about Hillary's VP picks:


Deval Patrick was a hell of a speaker and he's a fighter... this was 2012 though. It's his DNC speech taking on Willard and his accomplishments and his ideas:

One conservative blog referred to a NY Times story:
Why Clinton will choose Deval Patrick as vice president
By James P. Freeman | April 30, 2016, 8:56 EDT

In its analysis, The Times weighed the pros and cons of Patrick as a running mate. The pros are obvious: Patrick brings diversity to the ticket (he is the first African-American governor to be reelected), has close ties to the business community (he is a partner of Bain Capital, the investment firm), and invokes a heartwarming personal story (overcoming a childhood in poverty). The cons seem less problematic: Massachusetts is not a swing state (neither was Joe Biden’s Delaware for Barack Obama) and Patrick “could easily be tarred as another Massachusetts liberal.”

Patrick also brings executive level experience to this campaign and would be comfortable in the role of presiding over the contemplative Senate, where he would forge coalitions. And Patrick would deliver an elegant poetry – in speech and debate – to the proceedings, thereby elevating Clinton’s otherwise insipid prose on the campaign trail, in this dismal year of uninspiring political discourse.

Like anyone associated with the Clintons, however, Patrick’s relationship with them is, well, complex and enigmatic. As counsel for the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, Patrick sued Bill Clinton when he was governor of Arkansas, over that state’s alleged violation of the Voting Rights Act. In 1994, President Clinton appointed Patrick as an Assistant Attorney General, in charge of the civil right division. Just two years ago, in a radio appearance on WGBH, Patrick expressed concern over Hillary Clinton’s “inevitability” as the Democrat nominee, and said about her, “It’s not like we’re pals.”

Deval Patrick Joins the 2020 Race: ‘This Won’t Be Easy, and It Shouldn’t Be’
“I admire and respect the candidates in the Democratic field,” he said. “They bring a richness of ideas and experience and a depth of character that makes me proud to be a Democrat. But if the character of the candidates is an issue in every election, this time is about the character of the country. This time is about whether the day after the election, America will keep her promises. This time is about more than removing an unpopular and divisive leader, as important as that is, but about delivering instead for you.”
he has certainly mastered the art of using lots of words to say nothing at all.
“It was the worst of times, it was the worst of times.”

IMHO, he is really running to be the VP nominee for Warren/Biden/Sanders.

Possibly. But there's already someone with the perfect credentials in case the nominee is a white woman. Cory Booker.

Unlikely Booker or Patrick would be VP pick for Warren/Biden/Sanders. All 5 are from the New England states. Harris, Abrams, or Castro would be better ticket-balancing picks. IMO.

ETA: I'm still leaning, ever so slightly, to Harris as our nominee. In which case I think O'Rourke, Buttiegieg, or Castro would be good VP picks and would fire up the base and young voters.

My preference right now would probably be Julian Castro, with Kamala Harris as AG (though hate to lose her in the senate).

Yeah, I'm a Castro fan as well, but he's about done.

I heard Patrick on TV last night and couldn't get past the sound of his voice. He sounds like a South Park character.

There's an ugly story going around about his rapist BIL that involves Deval Patrick covering up for him. Really messy. I don't think he'll go anywhere.

Deval Patrick’s intervention over ex-brother-in-law brings renewed criticism

His political intervention in the case exposed his personal investment and the dangers of entangling the two. The victim was his sister, who had reconciled with Sigh after the 1993 rape.

But last summer, when they were estranged again, the saga took another turn. Sigh was convicted of raping his ex-wife again. The charges included violating a restraining order and even launching a kidnapping plot that included drawing a map so she could be captured while leaving work.

Wonkette tore into this guy yesterday.

https://www.wonkette.com/deval-patricks ... n-same-day
Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick launched his presidential campaign a little late, and if he's going to catch up with the political corpses of John Hickenlooper and Steve Bullock, he needs to hurry up and fail. So far, he's off to a good start at being terrible.

Patrick was until recently an executive for Bain Capital, and the best way to handle that is to ignore it and hope everyone's too polite to mention it. His bio was downsized from the Bain website. But reporters still ask Patrick about his time at Bain as if he worked there just last week, which he did. Patrick claims he never bought the Obama campaign's "demonization" of Bain during the 2012 election. He was co-chair of the campaign, so he didn't need to "buy" it, at least not at full price. I don't see the point of relitigating a successful political strategy, but Patrick clearly explained why he's defending Mitt Romney's company that killed Toys "R" Us.
PATRICK: You know, there's a right way and a wrong way to do everything, and some transactions in private equity are going to go sideways, with or without, by the way private equity. But I do think that capitalism, and I am capitalist, has a lot to answer for. There are reasons, and justifiable reasons, why people feel like our economy and our government has been tilted too much in the direction of moneyed intereests. Some of those are companies and some of those are individuals. There is a way out of that There is a way. And we're going to have something to say about that in our democracy.
Patrick is defining himself as an alternative to both Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren. He believes Biden's nostalgia trip "misses the moment" for "big systemic change," but unlike Warren, he thinks simply talking about "change" in inspiring tones is sufficient. The country needs to "unite" and "heal" and then after a long nap "unite" and "heal" some more. Patrick told Jake Tapper yesterday that an unspecified and nonthreatening "change" was the only way to "bring us back together." Presumably, love would keep us together.

That's horrible, he's a patriot and I think he's sincere that he wants to help America... but in this case, hope he's considering shutting this down. If he couldn't even get an audience at Morehouse, after a national rollout, what may have been his goal to move the party back to the right a bit will only serve to be a distraction.

Washington (CNN)Democratic presidential candidate Deval Patrick won't appear on Michigan's 2020 primary ballot following a decision by the Board of State Canvassers Friday.

The board voted 4-0 in agreement with a report from the Bureau of Elections released earlier this week that found Patrick had garnered only 8,660 valid signatures -- short of the 11,345 required to qualify for the state's March 10 primary.

Michael Doyle, communications manager for the Michigan Department of State, told CNN in an email Friday there were no representatives from Patrick's campaign at the meeting.

The decision marks a new challenge in Patrick's long-shot White House bid. The former Massachusetts governor launched his campaign last month -- less than three months before the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary -- without the national name recognition or financial power of other candidates in the crowded Democratic field.
A state party source previously told CNN that Patrick was not listed on Michigan's primary ballot in the first place because his campaign never asked.

"Any candidate who wanted to be included on that list could have contacted the Party," the Michigan Democratic source said. "We were in contact with the candidates included on the list. The candidates have to request being on the list, and he (Patrick) did not."

A Patrick campaign aide confirmed that they did not ask the Michigan Democratic Party to be listed, because they "believed we had to be in news coverage by (November 12) to make the party's list." The first stories about Patrick's impending presidential campaign appeared in national press November 11.
"We don't just go by media," the Michigan Democratic source said.

Deval Patrick to 'reflect' after lackluster New Hampshire showing
By - Associated Press - Updated: 10:09 p.m. on Tuesday, February 11, 2020

Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick says he will “reflect” on his lackluster showing in the New Hampshire primary and will soon “make some decisions” on the future of his Democratic presidential campaign.

Patrick, who entered the race in November, had said that a strong showing in New Hampshire was needed to have a credible shot at winning the nomination. But he trailed far behind the leading contenders in early election returns.

Patrick said Tuesday night: “We needed the winds from New Hampshire at our back to carry us on in this campaign.”
