  •  Whitmer would be a good candidate (5+ / 0-)

    but her reason for not running for Governor was her family, so I think she would be even less inclined towards a job where she would have to commute to DC.  

    •  That's my thinking as well (2+ / 0-)

      I think she'd be an excellent senator, but if she doesn't want to strain her family by staying in Lansing (where they live, no less) and being governor, I doubt she'll want to be living in D.C. part-time.

      •  there's time yet for Whitmer (1+ / 0-)

        to make a move in the future when her family situation makes the timing better. Keep an eye on that. Same underlying time frame as Stephanie Herseth Sandlin, in South Dakota. The warhorse will surge out of the (re)starting gate, when the time is right, barring the unforeseen.
