In the event that failed presidential candidate John Kerry gets the call to be Secretary of State, The Hill speculates that failed presidential candidate Michael Dukakis may be resurrected to replace him;
Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D) needs to find someone to fill Kerry’s seat until a special election can be held in the late spring or early summer.
Dukakis, who is 79, has remained politically active. He campaigned for Sen.-elect Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) this fall and teaches at Northeastern University.
That makes complete sense because Massachusetts is the graveyard of failed political careers, I’m sure there are plenty of political zombies roaming the streets there that aren’t Kennedys.
