    I find it halrious, they changed the rules so Romney could not name a replacement making it a special election, and now when Dems need it they change it again to get a dem appointed.

    It has a wonderful 'banana republic' feel to it.

    that's politics....

    the supreme court changed the rules and overruled the determination of the highest court of a state on a matter of election law.

    sometimes you win. sometimes you lose.

    and did you think that they'd appoint someone who opposed kennedy? at least you don't have to worry about them running for election when the time comes since that was part of the deal, i believe.

    Yeah, I don't really see what the big deal is. They appointed a man who would represent a vote in the senate that is identical to the representation that was elected, namely Ted Kennedy.

    Should the people of Massachusetts have been forced to go either unrepresented or represented by someone with an ideology which no one voted for instead? :confused:

    So you think it would have been proper for Mitt Romney to appoint a Republican to the Senate to replace John Kerry in the event he won the presidency, even though the Massachusetts voters had elected to have a Democrat represent them? :confused:
