What's the next move?

We'll do plenty of post-mortem on the past election over the following months. It's more fun to look at the pieces on the chess board and try to predict the next moves. Some of the possibilities are below. What's your prediction?

Scott Brown- After finishing up his business in the Senate, look for Brown to show up as a contributor on one of the cable channels. My guess is CNN. He won't want to damage his moderate creds by going to Fox. He'll watch what happens with Kerry and weigh a possible campaign to return to the Senate in another special election. He also might try to convince Charlie Baker to step aside so he can take a run for governor in 2014.

John Kerry- Kerry dreams every night of being Secretary of State. Despite his poor performance in debate preparation, the promotion is likely.    

Deval Patrick- With Eric Holder openly talking about leaving the Justice Department, Patrick could make a jump into the AG's position, with the hope of getting some national attention. If Kerry bolts to State and Brown runs for the Senate, I can see Patrick running to keep the seat blue.

Richard Tisei- He came maddeningly close to winning the congressional seat.  Can he win against a wounded Tierney in a rematch where Obama's not the top of the ticket? Or do the party bosses convince Tierney to retire after one more term.  It would be fun to listen to that speech- "I want to spend more [Federal] time with my family." Another Tisei run for LG is unlikely.  He's a better regional candidate.  

Martha Coakley- She may be intimidated by Grossman's money, but I still thinks she runs for governor in two years.
