"Lance Harris" asks:
If Obama wins second term, what about Martha Coakley for USAG if/when Holder is not reappointed?
On second thought, no chance in hell.
On the plus side for her, if Kerry gets SoS, then she can believe that she got passed over for US Attorney General because Obama wasn't going to make two Massachusetts cabinet appointments, rather than because half the nation's influential Democrats hold her personally responsible for all the ills of the world, and the party.
And it's not at all unreasonable to think that Obama, at Deval Patrick's request, might find some nice position for Coakley (maybe even US Attorney) to get her out of the 2014 governor's race. But not AG.
