The Nanny for U.S. Senate?


Actress Fran Drescher, star of "The Nanny", who, "since a bout with uterine cancer", "has become an activist for better health care for women and was named a State Department public envoy on the issue in September", recently touring "Eastern European countries to raise awareness of the issue on behalf of the State Department", "has expressed interest in being appointed to the U.S. Senate seat that New York's Hillary Clinton is giving up to become secretary of state".

Yes, it's a dumb idea.

But, Nanny Fine appears to have more governmental, social activist and public speaking experience than the legacy who is apparently the front runner.

How about giving the appointment to a seasoned professional - - a mayor or a congressperson - - who might just be able to hold the seat?
