But in Massachusetts, there are rules of advancement in politics. It's Marty Meehan and Steve Lynch who've been waiting in the wings for Ted Kennedy or John Kerry to move on or retire.
Marty Meehan has a $5 million war chest to run for senator. Will very popular Deval Patrick squish his chance to be senator?
Massachusetts Democrats have a sense of propriety: Whose turn is it? Did the candidate pay his dues?
But Deval Patrick is so popular!!! Can the Democrats stop this train? I don't think so. So Marty and Steve will go down in history as Congressmen ONLY.
Carr makes one mistake..There is NO special election for a vacant Seat. The governor appts someone until the NEXT regular statewide election...
