When there was a repub.gov. and Kerry might have been elected, Kennedy made a huge deal that we can not allow a gov. to replace the senator (because he'd replace with a repub.) now that a Dem. is the gov. and he knew he wasn't going to live much longer and there would be an open seat, he didn't want to risk an election, so let the dem.gov. replace me, hypocracy at its finest
Let the chips fall where they may and for those who say not voting for the Dem. is a vote for McCain, well, maybe so, but maybe sooner or later the Dems. will FINLALLY GET IT!
Tom Ganley (R) left the Senate race to challenge the 2-term Dem.

Which is why a few years ago I decided to make all of my political contributions only in Dem. primaries.
