Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick again would not commit to supporting Hillary Clinton for president, and voiced admiration for Senator Elizabeth Warren.
He made the comments in an interview today on CNN:
"I need a yes or no," said the CNN host, "because I got to move on: should Elizabeth Warren run for president this time around?"
"Well--you have to ask her that question," said Patrick. "But I'm a great admirer of Senator Warren, as I am of Secretary Clinton, and the others who are circling around."

Barney Frank publicly asked the Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick for the Senate seat held by John Kerry. (Kerry, of course, is stepping down to run the State Department.) But today it appears that Frank has been passed over.
CBS Boston is reporting that "Gov. Patrick announces Mo Cowan as interim Mass. Senator."
Cowan is Patrick's former chief of staff.
The official announcement is expected later today, at 11 a.m. in Massachusetts.
"I’ve told the governor I would now like, frankly, to" be senator, Frank admitted earlier this month on MSNBC:

Here’s an e-mail from Alex Vuckovic, a TWS reader from Massachusetts who was way ahead of the curve last December when he wrote to say that, yes, Scott Brown could win. He has some advice for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in his state, and it seemed worth passing on:
Kennedy's seat has been returned to the people. 10:25 AM, Jan 21, 2010 • By ROSS TERRILL
To the Boston left, "anger" and "Washington" explain Scott Brown's victory in the Massachusetts senate race, but the win was also a shaft of common sense hitting Bay State's echo chamber of liberal self-righteousness. "Voter anger caught fire in final days," said Wednesday's Boston Globe. "Massachusetts voters sent Washington a ringing message."

Martha Coakley Answers The Weekly Standard's Questions3:53 PM, Jan 5, 2010 • By JOHN MCCORMACK
Democratic attorney general Martha Coakley's campaign strategy is pretty simple: If she can run out the clock and deny Republican state senator Scott Brown the chance to make any big plays, she wins the January 19 special election to fill Ted Kennedy's seat. That's why she's agreed to "just one live, televised debate [on January 11] in Boston, the state’s major media market," has declined any debate that doesn't include libertarian candidate Joseph Kennedy, and has been avoiding the media.
