Am I the only one hoping Barney Frank gets appointed to fill Kerry's seat? I know it won't happen, but that guy is just too fun to lose. And realistically, he already knows Congress, will be 'unemployed' in January and could possibly move some of his staff with him. He could hit the ground running more any of the other people being mentioned could. But mostly, I just like seeing him interviewed. But Deval should really just put Paul Kirk back in and save us the expense of paying an additional pension. Who else has his kind of experience with caretaker Senatoring for the Commonwealth?
