the next Senator from Massachusetts… for, like, five minutes.

Barney Frank wants to be something Michael Dukakis doesn’t.  Interim Senator.

Why Barney Frank wants such a thing… apparently to fill some voids.  Because he views the next three months as important.  Too important to leave to … um… Senator someone short of the stature of Dukakis.

The problem comes in on why the Democratic brass always wants non-entities to fill interims.  Because there are politicos trying to stake out ground to beat Scott Brown.  Though, in that vein, you can skip back over to Paul G Kirk as a sort of permanent fill in.
