Caroline out?


Filed Under General on Jan 21 

It’s being flashed on Drudge that the New York Post is reporting that Caroline Kennedy is withdrawing her name for consideration for the vacated seat of now confirmed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

This is just a couple days after it looked like Kennedy was a cinch for the nomination, which if course I ripped Governor David Paterson for, in a post here on PD.

Maybe Paterson is concerned about my opinion?

Or maybe not.

Whatever the case, it now opens up the nomination to a number of candidates, the lead of which has to be Attorney General Andere Cuomo.

It remains to be seen how this turn of events may help or hurt Paterson in his potential future run for his own outright term as governor of New York.
