4. Not the least bit surprised

Patrick is my governor and he said he would finish his term. As the article points out, Patrick also said the same thing (he would finish his term as governor of MA) when his name was at the top of the short list for AG back in 2008.

I was pretty sure the dinner was purely social -- given that the president and the governor are really good friends, and nothing more. I think the Times and other papers that picked up the story about the dinner really being an exploratory meeting to discuss the AG job was an attempt to report 'news' when there really wasn't any.
