Bennett to Senate

I'm easing back into the real world after a relaxing Holiday break from the news, blogs and my RSS feed and the big news of the day is that Michael Bennett has been chosen to fill the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Ken Salazar.

I've worked with Michael Bennett on a handful of occasions and have been thoroughly impressed by him. In fact my statement after my first meeting with him was that he would make a great Senator some day. I'm surprised Ritter picked him and I think there are some obvious political concerns - can he raise money? What is his constituency? Is his name ID statewide high enough? That said I have little doubt that Bennett will be a fine and capable Senator.

Congratulations to Mr. Bennett.
