    As many times as it takes to ensure either a democrat can be shipped to DC by a democrat governor or to prevent a republican from being shipped to DC by a GOP governor.

    I figured this was obvious by now.

    I find problem with it this way-- please allow me to explain. If a dem keeps being appointed by way of dems changing the law-- how is it that we know that is what the people want and not politicians?

    But it seems they there is a worry-- considering there is the change-- that something may go wrong or someone may change their mind. Let the people decide-- not the politicians. I am not favoring anyone here-- I just believe that the decision should be left with the people and not have the law fiddled with each time someone sees fit or just wants to re:2004.

    The people will eventually decide ... in the special election.

    This is all about getting the extra vote in the Senate now.
