Dukakis Seen as Possible Replacement for Kerry

Michael Dukakis (D) "may be headed back to the political spotlight as he's considered a likely interim replacement for Sen. John Kerry (D-MA)," The Hill reports.

If Kerry is named Secretary of State as expected, 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... The Democratic primary for Kerry's seat will be intense and Patrick is expected to tap someone as an interim replacement who would promise not to run in the special election."

Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal reports Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA), "who just lost an expensive, hard-fought re-election campaign, may soon get a shot at redemption."
