Only two days after the election, Attorney General Mike Cox has formed an exploratory committee to run for governor in 2010.
People exhausted from the 2008 election aren't likely to get much of a break.
Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land, Congressman Pete Hoekstra and Dick DeVos are mentioned as possibilities on the Republican side.
Democrat hopefuls may include Lieutenant Governor John Cherry, former Detroit mayor Dennis Archer, Wayne County executive Robert Ficano, and Flint mayor Don Williamson.
There is some chance that Granholm may get a federal appointment, which would make Cherry governor.
