Attorney General Martha Coakley this morning picked up nomination papers to run for the Senate seat of Edward M. Kennedy, becoming the first candidate to throw a hat in the ring for what promises to be a fierce five-month-long race.

Coakley's nascent campaign picked up the documents from the secretary of state's elections division. She now needs to gather 10,000 certified voter signatures to qualify for the Dec. 8 Democratic primary. Those signatures must be submitted to city and town election officials for certification by Oct. 20.

The race for Kennedy's vacant Senate seat promises to be an interesting one. There has been talk that Joe Kennedy Jr. may step into the ring. Vicki Kennedy, Ted's wife, has been suggested for the job but so far has said she is not interested.

Gov. Deval Patrick will possibly appoint an interim senator (it hasn't been decided yet) until Jan. 19, when the election will be held.

It seems pretty much sewed up that Kennedy's successor will be a Democrat, but "it ain't over until it's over."
