Replacement Rumors

Via the Huffington Post, ABC News is reporting that David Paterson, the Governor of New York, has spoken to Caroline Kennedy about potentially replacing Hillary Clinton in the Senate.

What an intriguing idea.  For the Kennedy legacy aspect, I like it.  Caroline Kennedy is a pretty accomplished lawyer and scholar in her own right, and certainly earned herself a kickback of some sort for her timely and emotional endorsement of Obama during the primaries.  Her NYT op-ed was spot on, at moment that the Obama campaign really needed the Kennedy mystique on board.

I suppose some people will also point out that she’s a woman (just like Hillary!) and that should count for something.  Eh.

I’m excited to see where this goes.
