New York Governor Chooses Clinton’s Replacement

January 23, 2009 | NeW Staff

It seems Gov. David Paterson has decided that Democratic Congresswoman Kirsten Gillibrand will replace Hillary Clinton in New York’s Senate. Now, I am not particularly enthralled by New York state laws, but I am very interested in the mechanics of our government: how one comes to power, the extent of her power etc. Other than that she looks like a younger fresher version of Hillary (almost creepily, in fact), I don’t know a whole lot about Ms. Gillibrand. Her voting record in the House seems a bit safe. Any thoughts on the selection?

Also, I thought it worth mentioning, the treatment by some of Caroline Kennedy is a bit reminiscent of the criticism Sarah Palin received from the press. For anyone who thinks the press is consistently biased against conservatives watch this little Caroline Kennedy clip.
