Democrats, relativism and raw power

In 2004 when Massachusetts Senator John Kerry (D) was running for President, the Democcrat controlled Massachusetts Senate became concerned that if Kerry became President, Republican Governor Mitt Romney would appoint a Republican Senator to finish out Kerry's term. The Democrat controlled Senate, therefore, changed the law to prohibit Romney from appointing a replacement.

How quickly things change.

Now Massachusetts has a Democrat governor so the Senate approved a bill that would change the law back again to allow their Democrat governor to appoint a Senator to finish out the late Senator Edward Kennedy's term.

This is relativism at work. For all the Democrats' rhetoric about fairness and ethics, these Democrats were not concerned about what is fair or ethical or even which is the best policy. They were only concerned about maintaining their power.
