Massachusetts Governor Names Former DNC Head Kirk to Succeed Kennedy
The governor's appointee will serve until a special election is held Jan. 19, and will give President Obama the critical 60th U.S. Senate vote he needs to pass a health care overhaul this year.And yes, this is the guy the Kennedy family asked for.
I feel ill. If Kennedy hadn't held onto the seat until they had to pry it from his cold dead hands, then Massachusetts wouldn't have had to do this dirty shifting about.
