Major Political Parties To Massachusetts: Drop Dead!

Mike Dukakis was the governor of Massachusetts, and the Democrats ran him for president in 1988.

He lost.

John Kerry was the lieutenant governor of Massachusetts, and the Democrats ran him for president in 2004.

He lost.*

Mitt Romney was the governor of Massachusetts, and the Republicans ran him for president in 2012.

He lost.

If you're a governor, lieutenant governor, former governor, or former lieutenant governor of Massachusetts, then don't plan on running for President of the United States of America for, say, the next fifty years or so, as, based on the track record of governor types from Mass. lately, I don't think any major political party will be interested.** 

*Actually, he probably won (see What Went Wrong In Ohio: The Conyers Report on the 2004 Presidential Election),but, whatever the case, he didn't take office.

**But, hey, if you really want to run, then you could always start your own political party!
