The story about Caroline Kennedy dropping out broke in the NY Post?

Not Caroline?

The New York Post reports that the frontrunner to replace Hillary in the Senate is out.

UPDATE: Democrat close to Kennedy, however, says "she is not" pulling out. None of her spokesmen immediately responded to a request for comment.

UPDATE: I still haven't confirmed this, and people quite close to Caroline continue to deny it. Indeed, her New York City inner political circle appears to be out of the loop. But the story appears to be coming from Paterson's camp in Albany, so details aside, the effect is the same.


ALBANY, N.Y. - Published reports say Caroline Kennedy is withdrawing from her effort to join the U.S. Senate in the seat once held by her uncle, slain Sen. Bobby Kennedy.

The news is a shock to supporters and to Gov. David Paterson, who had appeared likely to appoint her to the seat by Saturday.

Citing personal reasons, Kennedy ended her monthlong bid to succeed Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, who was confirmed as secretary of state on Wednesday.

Kennedy's uncle, Sen. Edward Kennedy, who has been treated for an aggressive brain tumor, suffered a seizure Tuesday at the inauguration of President Barack Obama.

Her withdrawal was first reported by the New York Post.

5. That makes no sense!
Why would she do that?

She obviously wanted that seat, and I
think it was hers.
