#1 He's unwilling to claim a faux Cherokee heritage? After all, he does have high cheekbones.

#2 If he runs again he's going to have to answer the question, "what makes you think you can win this time when you were rejected by the voters last year?"

There's no good answer to that question. You either lie, or start jabbering inside baseball, or gloss over it. Voters notice.

Smart thing for him to do is to keep the honorific 'Senator' and find something that he loves to do.

#3 He may make a run for governor next year and he'd have a pretty good shot.
As far as the current race, Excretable Eddie is the party's anointed one but he's a horseshit candidate. A lot of the unions are taking a pass on him. I think Lynch is gonna take him in the primary. At least the guy has worked for a living and knows where his district is.
The Republican's are talking the usual suspects. Bill Weld, Charlie Baker, the rumor this morning is that they want Romney's wife to run.

#4 Don't forget Muffy Healy - talk about a thin 'Pub bench.

Never stopped the EU from repeating referendums in countries till they got the result they wanted.

#6 It was a politically savvy move. In Massachusetts, Republicans have a much better chance of winning the race for Governor (where a fiscally conservative Governor can be a spending break on the state legislator) than for Senator (where the voters prefer an extra vote for the Democrats). The extra time will distance Brown from previous defeats while also making him look good compared with the next Republican candidate who will do much worse in the election than Brown had done.

#7 Chelsea Clinton should be moving to Boston within a few weeks and begin talking about public service.
