Short term Senator Barney Frank?

Hell yes. At first he said he wasn't interested, but today Barney Frank wants to be interim Senator from MA until the special election.
Frank said that the fiscal cliff deal that passed the House of Representatives earlier this week and set the stage for a return to the same legislative fight in a matter of months "means that February, March and April are going to be among the most important months" for the American economy. The outspoken Democrat indicated he would only hold the seat until the statewide special election and has no designs of carving out a career in the Senate, but he relishes the opportunity to be a part of the next fiscal battle on Capitol Hill.
He would be perfect. Already knows his way around Capitol Hill. And as Charlie Pierce tells us Barney Frank is an old school scrapper. Never backed down from a fight in his life. Indeed, he goes out looking for one. Just what we need for the next hostage drama the GOPers invent.

Governor Patrick. Please make it so.
