It appears, according to this New York Post article, that it is “all but certain” that New York Governor David Paterson will choose Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of the late President John F. Kennedy, to replace soon-to-be Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the U.S. Senate.

And what’s the main reason?


It seems for Paterson, it’s not about the best person for the job, it’s about the person that gives you the best chance of getting elected to his own term as governor.

Apparently New York is bummed that Illinois has rocketed past it in the political intrigue and unsavoriness department.
