Fill that Senate Seat Massachusetts

Well not to jump for joy about the possibility but for the first time in nearly half a century, Massachusetts voters will be handed ballots for the U.S. Senate seat held by Senator Edward Kennedy without his name on them. He stole the seat by having it appointed to an interim Senator. This was because Kennedy was too young when his brother vacated the seat to become President. Unfortunately the list of suitors might be as bad as the latter. This is Massachusetts of course which has not had a Republican senator since the loss of Edward William Brooke, III in 1978 to Paul Tsongas. Since it has been 21 years and there is unrest over Obama care and Congress. Is there a chance there could be a shift. It is not likely as Massachusetts is only of the only states polled that favors Obama care. The front runners for the seat are congressmen, former prosecutors and one of Edward Kennedy’s nephews. One thing rumored that is as stupid as it sounds Vicki Kennedy wife Ted would assume his Senate seat, she has decline as if anyone actually asked. On the Democratic side Joseph P. Kennedy II, Attorney General Martha Coakley, Representative Stephen Lynch, Michael Capuano, Edward Markey, James McGovern and William Delahunt, former Congressmen Martin Meehan names have been floated. Republican side include businessman Jeff Beatty, former Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey, former U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan, state Sen. Scott Brown, and Chris Egan, a former U.S. ambassador. This all could be mute the Massachusetts legislature would likely have a public hearing on this issue within the next month. Can you say the fix is in, it usually is when these hacks have anything to say. Stay Tuned.
