    The State Senate of Massachusetts has passed a bill that would change how the Senate seat of John Kerry would be filled if he wins the November election. It could be pivotable in which party controls the Senate.

    Would they have bothered if the governor was a democrat and Kerry was a republican?

    It sounds like a much better idea anyway. Who does the Senator represent, his constituency or the Governor?

    Actually I agree it does make sense. However, if Kerry had been a republican and the governor a democrat think of the media's reporting on it? Think of the governor speaking on it the despicable republicans changing the law to fit their own agenda.

    Who knows? Does it matter if it creates a better system?

    Well duh, that's because most people agree that Republicans are evil bastards! No headscratcher there...

    So there's a clear Democratic majority? Thank goodness! I was SO worried!

    There's absolutely a clear Democratic majority... It's just not as clear when you only count people that vote.
