The recent Politico Magazine piece, “Was Hillary Clinton a Good Secretary of State?,” has advanced the emerging notion that her successor might be overshadowing Clinton’s tenure.

Over at Andrea Mitchell’s MSNBC show a few minutes ago, Mark Halperin noted this: “If Hillary Clinton doesn’t run for president, I bet you John Kerry does.”

The other panelists seemed incredulous. There was an awkward silence and then some perfunctory laughter. After all, when was the last time a losing nominee got another shot? Nixon? Still, I suspect Halperin is on to something.

And, as long as we’re speculating about Elizabeth Warren, why not John Kerry? Watch:
