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.
