New In The Phoenix -- Searching For The Next Deval

In this week's issue of the Boston Phoenix -- in print tomorrow, online now -- I look ahead to the fast-approaching 2014 race for Massachusetts governor.

But they also don't see anyone jockeying for that position, or very likely to successfully do so.

One reason (among many): there could be lots of other offices opening up to run for, depending on which A-Listers run for governor.
