State’s a worthless post. And he’ll be out of power in four years, instead of another possible twelve or eighteen years in the senate. I live in MA and we are all glad he is gone and is no longer our representative in the congress.
Why couldn’t he run for senate again later? He went back after losing a presidential bid, for pete’s sake, which used to be good enough reason to crawl into a hole forever.
By the wag, if state is so worthless what makes defense so damn important?
