      She'd have to resign and count on her replacement to appoint her, then run for it in 2014.

      Historically that doesn't work out for governors. It looks like craven cynical politics.

      If she wants to be a US Senator, the better path would be to appoint a distinguished placeholder who wouldn't run in '14, then wait a year or so and then announce she is seeking the senate seat instead of running for reelection for governor, because that way she can do a better job for the people of the great state of Sc, or something like that
