Atul Gawande for Senate?
I like the idea of appointing Dr. Atul Gawande as an interim senator to Ted Kennedy's seat. No one knows health care better, and few have been as influential in this process. I'd worry that Atul himself would find it a bit of a disappointing experience, as knowing stuff is not likely to matter much at this stage in the process, and may just make the final weeks of the legislative sausage-grinder more stomach-turning. But it would be a bulletproof choice, and would certainly lead to a great New Yorker article.
