Novak - No

Novak writes that Barbour will not appoint Charles Pickering to the Senate: "Contrary to published reports, there is zero possibility that Mississippi's Republican Gov. Haley Barbour will name 70-year-old retired federal Judge Charles Pickering to the Senate vacancy created by Sen. Trent Lott's impending resignation. Barbour feels Mississippi's tradition is for U.S. senators holding their seats for many years, not temporary seat warmers."
