Umm...Guys shouldn't we be talking about the 2 Senate Seats that Obama and Biden are giving up?

I just realized since they will be replacing Obama and Biden's seat in the senate.

Shouldn't we be fighting a grassroots fight right now to find 2 qualified progressives to replace them?

Thoughts?

I thought Biden's son was gonna get his dads seat?

Biden's son

Fuck that.  I don't care if it's R or D, Murkowski or Biden, nepotism is a plague to our system.  How about choosing someone based on merit?

If they choose Son-of-joe Biden, I will be deeply disappointed.

Re: Biden's son

Color me ignorant and maybe remove the "deeply," but it still looks terrible.  There are already too many entrenched political families in this country, and appointing relatives, no matter how qualified, is the worst form of this.  

I would even go so far as to prefer someone slightly less qualified than Beau Biden just to avoid the appearance of nepotism in our so-called meritocracy.  If he wants to take over his father's seat, he should at least have to run for it in a normal election.

The Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich (D) will be appointing some one to replace Barack.
