According to a Politico article, Obama is a close friend of Patrick and thinks him to be among a very small group with strong political talents and has “privately encouraged him to think about it, among others”
Deval thinks otherwise as he says “I’m trying to think about how to be helpful, because I care about the country, and I’m a patriot first. It’s way, way too soon to be making plans for 2020,”
Even so, people who worked under the Obama Administration agree that Patrick Deval would be a good choice for the presidency in 2020. They see him as “a perfect match, the natural continuation of Obama’s legacy”
