Senator Ted Kennedy is asking for the Massachusetts legislature to change the process from a special election to fill the United States Senate seat, to an appointment by the Governor of Massachusetts, he claims so the Democrats will not lose a vote, I personally believe it is so another Kennedy will be swept into power.
I personally believe in the original Constitution way of selecting Senators, that the state legislatures & governors control the process, as the United States Senate is suppose to be the direct representative of the states, and the indirect representative of the people. However, Kennedy is doing this for complete political purpose, and he is attempting to use his political capita to literally change the way United States Senators are appointed in case of death, resignation, etc.
