What's Next for Jim Messina?

Though Obama re-election campaign manager Jim Messina will stay on as the unpaid national chair of "Organizing for Action" -- the campaign-turned-advocacy group -- he won't be involved in the operation's nuts and bolts, BuzzFeed reports.

"Messina's next big move -- after managing the biggest presidential campaign in the history of politics -- seems as much a mystery to him as it does to his friends and political observers. He says that what he told the Montanan in 2009 -- that he'd die running campaigns -- still stands, but yet he readily admits that can't see himself managing a congressional or gubernatorial race, or even another presidential race. Not in the near future, at least. And the most political of political staffers say he hasn't quite figured out that next move."
