The Death of Frank Lautenberg

Sen. Lautenberg died today.  He is the last World War II veteran to serve in the US Senate and was one of the strongest liberals in that body for a generation.  We will see a lot of kind words being said about this giant of the Pro-Choice movement for the next several days up to his funeral I am sure.

There is another item that will soon become very significant.  His term runs thru 2014.  Governor Christie will be called upon to appoint a replacement.  I should think that the best possible pick would actually be Governor Christie himself.  He is barely a Republican and one that should be acceptable enough to both parties for a one year visit to Washington D.C.
