All in the Family: Deval Patrick joins Romney's firm

Boston Globe - Deval Patrick is joining the Boston investment giant Bain Capital, where the former governor will start a new line of business, directing investments in companies that produce profits but also have a positive impact on social problems.

Patrick, a Democrat who led the state of Massachusetts for eight years, joins a firm founded by his Republican predecessor in the State House, Mitt Romney.

This contrasts with WEB Du Bois, of Great Barrington and Harvard, who was always basically a Charles Sumner Democrat, but the country shifted so far to the right in his 95 years that he wound up in 1963 at home as a communist in Ghana. Patrick is an exemplar of the Booker T. Washington position that capital is more important than civil rights.
