I have a suggestion...

...for filling vacant senate seats. Why not make it the custom to have governors appoint elder statesman-types to serve out the previous senator's term with the understanding that they not run for reelection? I've heard Michael Dukakis's name mentioned as a replacement for Ted Kennedy. He'd be the perfect person to serve out Kennedy's term while the other prospective candidates begin jockeying for position.
