Deval Patrick: Sense of Hillary Clinton Entitlement is ‘Off-Putting’ To Voters

Speaking on Meet The Press, Governor Deval Patrick (D, Ma.) addressed the common belief that Hillary Clinton is “inevitable” to win the nomination for Democrats in 2016.

“The narrative that it’s inevitable is off-putting to voters,” Patrick said.

“The American people want – and ought to want – their candidates to sweat for the job, to actually make a case for why they are the right person at the right time” Patrick said. “
