Slightly OT: DeCandido for Senate!

So, there's been a lot of talk about Caroline Kennedy getting Hillary Clinton's US Senate seat once she leaves to become US Secretary of State. Amongst her qualifications are her status as a member of the New York bar, the fact that she's served on some boards, the fact that she wrote a book about privacy, and the fact that she gave her support to Barack Obama.

But I have a better idea.

Keith R.A. DeCandido for US Senator from New York! Seriously. He's written way more books than Kennedy has, and he supported Barack Obama, too! He's a resident of the State of New York who is over the age of 30, and a hell of a lot of his Star Trek books have been political!

Just think of it! Once in office, Senator DeCandido can mobilize the resources of the United States Senate to support the Transporter Improvement Act, or to re-dedicate resources to controlling the environmental threat represented by tribbles! And he'll be able to provide the Senate Intelligence Committee with all sorts of information on the activities on the Cardassian Obsidian Order within America's borders!

So who's with me?

DECANDIDO FOR SENATE '09!
