Barney Frank Wants Senate Appointment To "Protect Things That I Care About"
Retired Congressman Barney Frank (D-Mass.) has offered to fill John Kerry's Senate seat if he's confirmed to become the next Secretary of State. He joins MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell to talk about why he's the right man for the job.
Frank said the only difference between him and the others who would like the interim senator role is that "I have said so publicly and the rest are being coy." He says "it's junior high school stuff" for people to criticize him for volunteering himself for that role.
