Senator Hypocrite

Senator Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) wants to have Massachusetts law changed to allow the governor to appoint a new Senator to fill his seat if he should die before the end of his term.  That used to be the law . . . until 2004 when Kennedy himself pushed a change to require a special election to fill a vacant seat in the Senate.

What's different?  Today, the governor of Massachusetts is a Democrat.  In 2004, the governor was a Republican.
