Senator Dukakis?


With approval to appoint an interim senator expected, the Boston Globe reports former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis looked like he knew something at a dedication ceremony when he was jokingly recognized as "Senator Dukakis."

"Dukakis, who has been seen as a leading choice for the interim appointment, grinned wide, shook his head, and looked down."

When asked later, the "normally loquacious former governor dodged numerous questions over whether he is interested in the appointment," saying "I'm not commenting. Why not? 'Cause I don't want to comment."

5. The interim pick must agree not to run in the special election,
unfortunately.

I believe that's how it goes.
