  •  Barney Frank for the interim seat, then Ed Markey (15+ / 0-)

    Gov Deval Patrick appoints an interim replacement when John Kerry resigns sometime before he is sworn in as Sec of State. BarneyFrank just said, out loud, "Put me in, coach" on Mourning Joke today. I heard the words! It was witnessed by The Noot, even. And Bob Woodward.

    It probably isn't a coincidence that yesterday was Barney's last day in the House. Then he shows up on national TV "hinting" that he might consider serving for the 3 month interim period. He mentioned that this particular time was important to the economy and blah, blah, blah...

    Then a special election is scheduled about 3 months later. I think Barney sincerely wants to enjoy his retirement. Ed Markey has signed up for the special election. Kerry's already endorsed him.

    Congressman Ed Markey is also one of the most highly respected members in the House. He's been a Congressman since 1976.

    Republican's worst nightmare. Surprise!
