No Caroline

Here is Caroline Kennedy's statement regarding her withdrawal from consideration for appointment as Senator from New York:

"I, like, informed Governor Paterson today, you know, that for personal reasons I am, like, withdrawing my name from consideration, you know, for the United States Senate,"
It's bad enough that we had a carpetbagging Senator from Illinois by way of Arkansas by way of Washington, DC. Even if you didn't like her you had to admit she was competent. Nothing of the sort could be said about Caroline Kennedy. Good riddance.

    Agreed. She looked totally useless.

    It's a mazing that if she didn't withdraw her name she would have been appointed. She has done absolutely nothing in her life to merit even being considered for the position.

    WELL now they have this new, thought to be appointed represenntative as senatort, Representative kirsten Gillibrand. She causes much controversy, as she is a supporter of the National Rifle Association, as well as being a democrat. She already started issues with Caroline McCarthy.This may cause more issues, but then again, what isnt controvertial in politics? Caroline said if Gillibrand would be appoingted as senator, then she would run against her in 2010.o well gesunta hait, (i hope thats how you spell it. )

    From the Congressional Quarterly, by way of Commentary (hat tip to Abe Greenwald, an excerpt from a NY Times interview with the junior senator from NY.

    CLINTON: Gee, I’d never heard that he could be any of those things before. (Laughter.) You know, personally, because I do know him so well, I understand what drives him and, you know, how mission- oriented he is. He’s a consummate professional, and he is always looking for ways to advance the real and lasting solutions that are in pursuit of American interests and values. And obviously, you know, like any, you know, really focused and passionate person, occasionally he has to be, you know, brought down to earth and reined in so that he, you know, doesn’t levitate or, you know, levitate the rest of us.

    But he is someone who, you know, is really such a dedicated public servant that I, you know -- I am, you know, really grateful he took on this responsibility. It takes -- you know, it takes a big change in his life to be able to relocate and do this. But I think that, you know, many -- you know, many people who have worked with Richard over the years know that he’s someone who, you know, just doesn’t quit, is always trying to be creative and flexible, but without losing sight of what’s most important. He’s not somebody who gets -- you know, loses the forest for the trees. He wants to count every tree, but at the end of the day, he wants to try to, you know, create the conditions that will lead to peace.
