She’s Out, she’s in, she’s back out.
A funny thing happened on the way to Caroline Kennedy’s entitled coronation as NY Senator … it didn’t happen.
Yesterday Caroline Kennedy ended her US Senate bid to replace Hillary Clinton as the junior Senator of NY. Kennedy stated it was for “personal reasons”; however, The New York Post suggests it was because she learned she was not going to be picked as Senator.
Does this mean that Republicans will be playing “Nah, nah, nah, hey, hey, goodbye…” like Obama supporters did for GWB?
Caroline Kennedy last night withdrew from consideration to replace Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton – just two months after she rocked the New York political landscape by throwing her hat in the ring, The Post has learned.
“I informed Governor Paterson today that for personal reasons I am withdrawing my name from consideration for the United States Senate,” Kennedy said in a statement released hours after the Post first broke the story.
New York Gov. David Paterson recently said on Tuesday in a statement that Andrew Cuomo was being considered for the position. Was that what caused Kennedy’s sudden decision? As Hot Air suggest, one would hardly think that Caroline Kennedy would stay in a race she was not going to win especially after making it so public that she wanted the job. The New York Senate seat of Caroline Kennedy’s to lose as it was all but a foregone conclusion with the Obama-Kennedy ties that Caroline would become the junior Senator.
UPDATE I: Hold the phone there has been a change of mind, Caroline Kennedy remains in the contest for Hillary’s Senate seat. Breitbart is reporting that a person close to Caroline Kennedy decision says, “She’s in the race”. However, the spokespersons are silent. Caroline Kennedy waffling on a decision as to whether she wants to run for the Senate seat? Hell, maybe she is Senate material after all.
After wavering briefly, Caroline Kennedy renewed her determination Wednesday to win appointment to the U.S. Senate seat once held by her slain uncle, Bobby Kennedy, a person close to the decision said.
MSNBC also reported that a person close to Kennedy denied that she was out of the running.
Spokesmen for Caroline Kennedy and for Gov. David Paterson, who will make the appointment to fill the Clinton seat, wouldn’t comment.
UPDATE II: Wait, She is Out Again … Caroline Kennedy confirms she has withdrawn from contest.
