Who do you think will relace the late Ted Kennedy in Senate following January 2010 special election?

I don't know but I bet a fellow Democrat

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.

This.  But the pundits' choice seems to be Vicki Kennedy.  Either one would be sufficient; you're never going to fully replace the man.

I don't know but I bet a fellow Democrat

I'm pretty sure the GOP knows their fate for this seat. Tongue

A democrat who's not a Kennedy. I'd guess Martha Coakley.

Does anyone on this forum know anything about Joe Kennedy? There was a reason he dropped out of the 1998 race. Unimpressive Congressman, ugly divorce, conflict of interest and investigation. He is one of three Democrats who might run into serious problems in a general election and the most likely of them to make it.

My guess is Coakley, Meehan, and Capuano will be the three big players in the election. I'd give Coakley a slight edge there, since Meehan has significant negatives among Democrats and she's run statewide before.

all the Kennedys have some kind of baggage, this is the same seat that his two uncles have had since 1953, it's only ceremonial that another Kennedy gets this seat.

And, most recently, a whore for the country of Venezuela.

I can't see anyone making hay on that issue. It's not going to win you anyone who isn't already reflexively voting against a Kennedy. You want Grandma to freeze to death?

I don't think it'll make its way into being a major issue either, but personally, I greatly resent him allowing himself to be used as a propaganda arm for Hugo Chavez.  That's all.

Patrick has a press conference at 3 PM today.

Essentially to set the date: January 19, 2010.

Also that he's "weighing" Kennedy's request for an interim senator.

Seriously. I was seriously annoyed (more than usual) at the Bush Administration's criticism of Kennedy for accepting low cost heating oil from Chavez because it was intended to embarrass Bush.

Here's a thought, W. Why aren't you embarrassed at failing to properly fund heating fuel assistance. Do the right thing in the first place and you may not have such problems.
