An editorial in the Boston Globe calls on him to resign. (We could also be talking about Robert Byrd). It's been months since we have seen Kennedy, one of our most powerful senators. I think it's ridiculous that they are allowed to continue to serve when they are clearly unable to carry out their duties. Also not thrilled with Kennedy's political move to change the way Massachusetts fills any vacancies in the US Senate. He spearheaded the change to take the power away from the Governor to appoint a replacement (Romney was Gov. at the time) and now that a Democrat is back in the Governors mansion, he wants to change it back. Politics at its worst IMO. Discuss.
