Oh my. Matt Viser floats the possibility:
Scott Brown hasn’t ruled out a 2014 run for governor, meaning there’s an outside chance he and Martha Coakley could face off once again.

OK, so I know your first reaction:
OK, OK, me too … But squint really hard and think … what if Governor is actually much closer to her skill set? Governor might be better suited to someone more technocratic, more wonky — more so than Senator, which tends to be a more glam, media-heavy kind of gig for a movement figure. (Which explains the media’s boredom with Ed Markey. I think of him as a climate movement figure, but apparently I’m lonely that way.)
And what if she learned something from her previous defeat? Has Scott Brown learned anything from his? Seriously, put them next to each other again … How bad is it? Real bad?
