Pros of Alan Khazei running again:
He’s run for Senate before, and made major inroads in the last campaign
It’s a regular election, so he will have more time to win over voters, a luxury he didn’t have in the last campaign.
He has fresh new ideas that will help rally a new generation of progressives.
The media loves him.
He has a strange crossover appeal, and is able to assuage the fears of conservatives, despite being very liberal.
Cons: he’s coming off a defeat, and may not want to risk another.
Still lower name recognition than a lot of other potential candidates.
He’s never held public office before.
So, what is everyone thinking about this? Who should we nominate in 2012?
