GOVERNOR: "UNPLEASANT, INTRUSIVE AND GRUELING"

GOVERNOR:
Gov. Deval Patrick said he's not interested in running for vice president in 2016 even if Hillary Clinton calls. Patrick made the comment during his monthly radio show on WGBH-FM Thursday. Patrick, who has repeatedly said he's not interested pursuing the presidency in 2016, described running for public office as an ``unpleasant, intrusive, grueling business.'' Asked if he's ruled out ever running for public office again, Patrick said ``maybe one day but not in the foreseeable future.'' Pressed if he would reconsider if he got a call from presumed Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton, Patrick said, ``if you're asking me if I want to be vice president, the answer is, `no.''' Patrick is in the final year as governor of Massachusetts and is not seeking re-election. He's said he's anxious to get back to the private sector.
