Former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick visits the Times boardroom for his endorsement interview. The editorial board pushed him on his late entry into the race, his moderate proposals for America’s varied crises, and the lingering scandals from his governorship. Plus: “PatrickCare,” a saint for president, and buying new hips vs. soap. Find the unabridged and annotated transcript of Patrick's visit to the board at nytimes.com/endorsements.
