21. She would be fantastic as the junior Senator and a true progressive.
Also, I am reassured by the fact that she is a Kennedy. She doesn't have anything to prove. She doesn't have any high ambition. She just wants to serve the people and help government work again. When was the last time we had a Senator who just wanted to serve the public - not become powerful, or rich, or well-connected?

29. Does she have an uncle named Ted?
Continue your poo pooing if it's what floats your boat.

I just think we need to get back to finding more honest public servants who truly want to do the business of the people - Caroline being one such person. I'm not at all opposed to Cuomo.

34. She actually has bowed out
http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/01/22/caroline.kennedy...

CNN) -- Caroline Kennedy has given up her bid for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Hillary Clinton.

In a one-line statement citing personal reasons, the widely considered front-runner said Thursday she told New York Gov. David Paterson a day earlier that she was no longer interested in the job.

"I informed Governor Paterson today that for personal reasons I am withdrawing my name from consideration for the United States Senate."

The statement, provided by Kennedy's press person Stefan Friedman, was issued after hours of divergent reports Wednesday evening.

25. MSNBC really fucked up on that report, I hope Tweety is yelling at someone
Most of Hardball was pre-empted because of this mysteriously sourced, not confirmed story.

"I informed Governor Paterson today that for personal reasons I am withdrawing my name from consideration for the United States Senate," she said in a one-sentence statement released after midnight. Her spokesman, Stefan Friedman, wouldnt comment further.
