Gov. Patrick: No VP run for me in 2016

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (AP) - 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.
