Who replaces who?

Now that the D's have picked their best candidate for Ted's chair, all kinds of sickening things will happen here in Mass. When she leaves for Washington, the House and Senate get to pick her replacement, by secret ballot. Secretary Galvin wins and is appointed to the AG's office, DeLeo takes his place as secretary... That means a new Speaker has to be elected, or Senate Pres Murray may not call a joint legislative session, which will leave the AG position open for the next in line David Freidman. A handful of D's are circling the wagon to run for her seat as are a few R's.

The down and dirty of Massachusetts politics will be at hand come Jan 19th when Coakley wins and leaves the State. None of which, will help anyone in the State, excluding the ruling elite, as they always come out on top. Look for this subject to dominate an otherwise boring polictical winter.

This is getting weirder and weirder every day. the power that these people have is not exactly warranted, don't you agree? Why isn't every single open position one that requires the voters to choose?

John.... sad to say, it's all about what they want and what's best for them and their party.
