Of course the story still hasn’t been confirmed, but signs seem to be pointing in that direction.
As I’ve said before, while I’m not personally opposed to Caroline Kennedy as a person, I’m very much to the belief that a wealthy or famous person is entitled to political power. If Caroline wants the Senate seat, she should run for office and win an election.
So who will Patterson appoint? My guess is state Attorney General Andrew Cuomo who regularly outperformed Caroline Kennedy in public opinion polls. Dark Horse candidate? Congresswoman Kirsten Gillibrand.
