    Would be thrilled to have him as my Senator.   (I wouldn't mind O'Donnell either).

    Washington and Colorado said that you've got to legalize it. Hope the DOJ respects that.

      Especially against Scott Brown in the general election.
      Two great Congressmen that would hit the ground running when they get to the Senate..

        Frank to be the interim Senator. Markey should be able to tell Deval that X interim is who he wants. Deval should appointment the person Markey wants.

        How would Frank help Markey win?

        Stephen Lynch, my former Rep., was redistricted. Markey is my new Rep.

        Lynch is a blue dog that wants to run. He needs to be told that he should not run. I hope the next election will have a strong opponent running.

          I'm in total agreement with that.  I am from Massachusetts also.  I don't think it is up to Markey, who I really like, to say who gets to be interim and who doesn't.
