Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D) isn't ruling out a potential presidential run in 2016 or beyond.

Patrick told Politico he could "maybe" see himself as a candidate for president, saying he'd wait to see "what time tells."

“That's a decision I have to make along with my wife of 30 years, and she's a tough one to convince,” Patrick said.

Patrick said he'd "like to have another opportunity to serve."

"I believe in service. I enjoy it,” Patrick said. “I also like coming and going, you know, because I think that my private-sector life has contributed to how I think about public-sector challenges and what I do in the public sector.”

Patrick was in Washington, D.C. this weekend with a group of other state leaders for a meeting of the National Governor's Association. President Barack Obama told the governors to "make yourselves at home" at the White House during their visit in D.C.
