Will We Have Another Senator Kennedy?

If you’re a lover of political history among other forms of history you’ll be delighted to hear that Caroline Kennedy is interested and is seriously being considered to fill the vacant Senate Seat by Hillary Clinton.

I think this is a good, safe and wise choice by Gov. Patterson (D-NY) for many reasons, but politically I think if he decides to appoint Caroline Kennedy it would do him no or very little harm in terms of his rapidly approaching re-election campaign. She’ll be able to campaign in two years and do well.

I have nothing against the other candidates, but believe she will be appointed to be the next junior senator of New York.

At least the governor is smart enough to not make the same mistake that plaques his Illinois counterpart.

  1. She’ll be perfect for the job. I urge NYers to vote for her.
    Not that Hillary is out of the Senate where she can’t make more chickenhawk votes. Kennedy has a opportunity to actually do something for NY and the country. And she will.

    She comes from good, Liberal stock. Definitely a big step forward for that Senate seat.
