What is the Real Reason for Patrick DC Trip?

The past few days, Governor Deval Patrick has been in Washington D.C. ostensibly to attend a Bio-tech conference.  Is that the true reason for the extended trip however?

As the Democratic field forms in the race to determine who will face Scott Brown in 2012, it becomes increasingly clear that the field is filled with lightweights.  To even the casual observer, Deval Patrick seems to be the only one with a chance at giving Senator Brown a run for his money.  

I’m pretty sure that Patrick is doing some “testing of the waters” with the powers that be down in DC. What do you think?
