WASHINGTON — Lawmakers on Sunday suggested that the senate seat held by late US Senator Ted Kennedy could be filled by his widow, Vicki, despite her professed reluctance to take the job.I trust the captain of the Imperial Guard assents.

I really hate this sort of thing, but if it's being touted in an attempt to shore up health-care reform, maybe it's useful. Seems a little bold for Democratic politics though.
