Well, I don't know about an "easy" decision. But certainly it's hard to imagine someone more qualified than Frank for the interim position. -Charley
To put in my 2 cents: I absolutely love this idea. Frank knows DC inside and out, and could actually get some things done as an interim, unlike just about anyone else possibly in contention. He and Elizabeth Warren would be the ultimate power couple when it comes to financial issues - how awesome would that be? Plus, he'd be the second openly gay person (Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) is the first), the first gay man, and the first gay person who is married, to serve in the US Senate. Just do it, Gov. - promoted by david
Via TPM, when asked about the Senate interim appointment:
“I’m not going to be coy. It’s not anything I’ve ever been good at,” Frank said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “I’ve told the governor that I would now like, frankly, to do that because I would like to be a part of that. It’s only a three-month period. I wouldn’t want to do anything more. I don’t want to run again.”
Governor, it’s an easy decision.
