    If Barney Frank puts in a few months in the US Senate, until after the special election, I have a strong feeling that we, and he, will wish he was running for the seat in the special election.  He is so bright and articulate, and, as a US Senator, he'd only have to run every six years, so he could relax a bit, (as opposed to US House members who are constantly running for reelection),  he could relax on the constant campaigning and focus on legislating.  

    He is already doing a better job than anyone else who is running on either side.  Where is Scott Brown or any of the other Democrats?  He speaks intelligently and people from all backgrounds respect his opinions.  He would certainly make the US Senate a more interesting and productive body.  He knows how to cut deals to get the job done, in the spirit of Ted Kennedy and other great legislators.

    I know he wants to enjoy an well earned retirement, but, wow, what a talented guy, we could sure use him in the US Senate.
