Governor Deval PatrickThe Massachusetts special appointment bill to name Senator Ted Kennedy’s replacement has just passed the Senate. Now all we need is Governor Duvall Patrick‘s signature. The vote was by a 24-16 margin.

Gov. Patrick said he will name an appointee by Friday, and then the Democrats will be back to a 60 seat majority.

    This is really good news. I can only hope that the Dems can get it together and pass some meaningful health care reform.

    I noticed that MoveOn and others are targeting the Blue Dogs in their districts. Maybe their own voters will move them to do the right thing.

    And if they don’t? 2010 is not that far away. 😉
