Regime change in Massachusetts...

While the national focus today is on the changes in Washington here is Massachusetts we have the inauguration of a new Governor - Deval Patrick. This is an historic event since Patrick is only the second African-American to be elected as a Governor in the United States.

Most of my liberal/progressive friends have big hopes for the Patrick Administration. I have more of a wait-and-see attitude. Maybe I'm too cynical about politicians who make a lot of promises! Anyway, here's hoping our new Governor is very successful in providing leadership for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
