    ...that he's a very good and capable executive.

    I'm not sure that ability would be best used in the Senate, as opposed to, say, a post in the Cabinet in the next Democratic administration (or, since he'll no longer be governor come 2015, the last two years of this Democratic administration).

    Not to mention that in Maryland, we've got a really deep Democratic bench and few worries about hanging on to Mikulski's Democratic seat, particularly in a presidential election year, so it's not like we need a candidate the voters know and like from the get-go, like we might in other less-Democratic states.
