President Obama has a favorite for 2020 and he’s pulling all the strings he can, to make his political wish come true.
Obama and his advisers are pushing former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick to run in 2020.
Word has it, that Obama’s two top advisors, David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett are the strongest proponents of a Patrick run.
Patrick is a 61-one-year old former civil rights attorney and businessman.
This move may anger someone in Obama’s inner-circle who has his eyes on the White House.
Well, if it’s any consolation to Biden, according to Obama, he and Patrick are the ONLY candidates who could possibly beat President Trump.
Uh, more like neither.
President Obama and some of his advisers have been pushing former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick to run for president in 2020, it was revealed on Tuesday.
According to Politico, David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett are two of the Obama alums urging the 61-year-old Patrick to consider a White House bid.
Jarrett, one of Obama’s closest White House advisers, told Politico that a Patrick presidential bid is what “my heart desires.”
“He has the ability to touch people’s hearts as well as their minds,” Jarrett said recently. “I think our country is ready for that now — let alone in three years.”
“He’s kind of a natural to look at because he was a successful governor, he is an inspiring guy, and you have to ask yourself what is the country going to be looking for in their next president after this guy?” said Axelrod, who has advised Patrick in the past.
