Don’t’cha just LOVE the Game of Politics?....Never a dull moment......I Love former Congressman Barney Frank and he tells it like it is like no other Congressman probably ever will, but I frowned when he ran to the Media suggesting he’s the perfect pick for Kerry’s vacated Senate seat. In my opinion he’s served his time and now it’s time to move aside and embrace new blood. To his credit then Representative Frank did have a private meeting with Governor Patrick submitting his name for consideration before talking to the Press. Like Bees to honey MSNBC and other Liberal media followed suit suggesting Outgoing Rep. Frank would be a great pick for the 5-month gig.
All the while Governor Patrick had plans to appoint his former Chief of Staff William Cowan.
“He has been a valued ally to me and our work on behalf of the people of the Commonwealth,” Patrick said at a news conference. “In every step, he has brought preparation, perspective, wisdom, sound judgment, and clarity of purpose.”
“Cowan said he was “honored and humbled” to get the temporary post, which will make him the first African-American to represent Massachusetts in the Senate since Edward Brooke held the seat as a Republican from 1966 to 1978.”
Too bad Senator Cowan is gonna give up his US Senate seat in June without a Political fight. With all the praise I’m reading about him he sounds like a Solid well rounded guy that the Libs in the Senate NEEDS.
Cowan also looks a lot like the great actor Charles S. Dutton. When I saw him on TV last night I had to do a double-take.
