    Does anyone want to hear something scary??.one of the names being passed around is the current governor of massachusetts Deval Patrick..as a resident of massachusetts I can tell you there couldn't be a worse choice..any politics aside,this is a man who can't make a decision even if the answer is staring him in the face..appointing him for life on the supreme court would be a mistake..hopefully he will instead run for congress where he can become irrelevant..his chances of getting reelected as governor are slim to none..there is a reason he is known as "Tax It All Deval"
