A legislative committee co-chairman overseeing a bill to hand Gov. Deval Patrick the power to appoint a temporary successor to ailing U.S. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy admitted yesterday the move is aimed at keeping a Democrat in the seat.Just let the people decide, and don't temp the politicos with a major pay-to-play opportunity.

They will say how important it is to have 2 Senators, that they can't wait for an election. Edward M. Kennedy’s roar falls on deaf ears - BostonHerald.com Funny, but giving that much power to a governor in Illinois didn't work out too good. (And before you say Blago and Burris would NEVER happen in the People's Republic of Massachusetts, I will just say that politics is pretty much the same everywhere.)
