1. That is pretty damn interesting.
Is this a method of "vetting?"

BTW, as far as the DSCC goes, I miss Chuck!

2. The article is new to me, although I guess it was posted on the web
Edited on Mon Dec-08-08 02:31 AM by Old Crusoe
on Saturday of this weekend.

It mentions a liaison, Charles O'Byrne, between Kennedy and Paterson, giving the impression that this may have been in the works for a while. I'm only guessing, but both camps appear to be turning to this liaison figure to advance the idea.

3. It appears that she may be genuinely interested in the position if Gov.
Paterson were to offer it.

As for the subsequent races in 2010 and 2012, I don't think fundraising or campaign enthusiasm would be impediments.

4. I'm under the impression that she said she would only fill out the rest
of HRC's term. Did I get that wrong?

5. Hi, CTyankee.
Good question.

I don't know.

I'll try to hunt and peck a bit around the web and see if I can find anything.

6. Hey, OC. I read it here on DU and I didn't really question it.
I'm sure we'll find out soon enough...
