    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!

    I dunno. Senator is a pretty demanding job, and he'd probably have to cut back to writing only 3 or 4 books a year.

    Yeah, but imagine how much more legislation he'll be able to write than most Senators!

    Don't worry, folks. He says that every time someone asks him to write a book.
    I'm sure he'll do fine once he gets over the shockof having to cut his hair.
    Especially since living right there in DC will make it a lot easier for him to get to Shore Leave and Farpoint.
    Somebody let the folks in Ne York know they can relax. KRAD's got this.

    Well, it's no "Change We Can Believe In", or "Kinder, Gentler Nation", but I've seen worse campaign slogans. It beats "Vote For Me- I'm Not A Criminal" or "I'm Not The Other Guy". :lol:

    Oh, you wanted a slogan?

    "DeCandido: You've Got Nothing To Lose But Your Cookies"

    "DeCandido: And You Thought the Sixties Were Over..."

    "DeCandido: No, We Really Can't"

    I think we should nominate Marco for the Senate seat instead. After all, he's in the market for a new job. And he's really good at making smart decisions.

    With his dojo skills, I could see Keith literally destroying the opposition.

    It reminds me of a T-shirt I have seen in American Chopper: "Mikey for President!" :D

    But what if someone brings up GARGANTUA in the confirmation hearings? That could scuttle his nomination for sure!

    Eh, y'all have forgotten one thing. Keith will take one look at what passes for "public transportation" down in DC and quit anyhow. Metro trains are broke these days more often than they run, and don't even THINK about taking public transport between Baltimore and DC!

    Pfffft. He'll be a United States Senator. I'm sure he'll get his own private shuttlecraft. ;)
