Now that senator Byrd has passed

is his replacement (the WVa governor) going to fall into the party line or is he going to remember what he's seen congress doing to the poorest states for the past 3 years with no regard for their resources?

  • I feel that he will appoint a democrat until the term runs out in 2012,

  • Sen. Byrd (RIP) is a perfect example of the need for TERM LIMITS

  • Birdie needed to go a long time ago. IMO opinion if you can't wipe your own butt anymore it's time to step off!!
    Murtha, Kennedy and Byrd-all gone. Good riddens.
    Manchin will put a democrat in, and the people hopefully will vote him out.
    Birdie is a big reason WV still ranks right ahead of MS when it comes to work ethic, jobs and other things like drugs, teen pregnancy and obesity. Keeping the people on the dole is what Birdie did best and that's why he stayed in 57 effin years.

  • Oh, he did pass. I was going to check the news next, but I came on here first. Sweet's right. There should be term limits or a mandatory retirement age. "Regular" folk don't hold high position like that in their 90s, neither should our lawmakers. No matter party affiliation.

  • Do they have another doddering old KKK member to take his place?
