Heh: Brown Says Kerry Would be an “Excellent” Choice for Secretary of State

Of course he did -- and for obvious reasons:

Outgoing Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) told reporters Tuesday that he has no existing plans to seek office again but did not rule out a future run.

"I'm not even concerned about that right now," he said during a press briefing in the Capitol, adding that the country faces huge challenges.

In response to a question, he said Sen. John Kerry (D-MA), a rumored candidate for Secretary of State, would be an "excellent" choice for the job. If Kerry vacates his seat, Brown would have the option of making another run for senator.

"We'll see what happens," Brown said.

"Aside from my marriage to my wife and the birth of my kids, serving in the Senate has been the greatest honor of my life," he said. "There isn't an opening for senator. But there is an opening for a dad and a husband."

While it is certainly true that there isn't an “opening for senator” in Massachusetts at the moment (although that may change, as the excerpt above indicates) it’s also worth noting that the governor’s mansion will be vacant in 2014. Governor Deval Patrick (D-MA) will not seek re-election, and considering Massachusetts has a surprisingly long history of electing Republican governors, Brown’s staggering loss to Elizabeth Warren may ironically open up new windows of opportunity. Whatever he decides to do, however, remains to be seen -- and will likely be dependent upon factors beyond his control. Still, suffice it to say we (probably) haven't heard the last from the outgoing junior Senator from Massachusetts.
