Here's one way to prevent any filibusters: Fran Drescher's screechy voice.

The former star of The Nanny – and inveterate New Yorker – wants to fill the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Hillary Rodham Clinton (who is leaving to become Barack Obama's Secretary of State).

New York Gov. David Paterson is said to be seriously considering former first daughter – and political activist – Caroline Kennedy, 51, for Clinton's position, but Drescher, also 51, is firm in her desire. New York magazine quotes the actress as saying she's qualified for the job, as well as "an authentic and honest person."

What do you think?
