Caroline Kennedy Reportedly Drops Bid For Senate Appointment

by on January 21, 2009

I really, really, really hope this is true… if she was picked, it would have insulted all of us…

Caroline Kennedy tonight withdrew her name from consideration to replace Hillary Clinton in the U.S. Senate after learning that Gov. David Paterson wasn’t going to choose her, The Post has learned.

Kennedy’s decision removes the highest-profile name in the ring to step into Clinton’s now-vacant seat, as she departs after getting confirmed today as President Obama’s Secretary of State.

Sources said the reason Paterson had decided not to tap the daughter of John F. Kennedy was her poor performances in media interviews and in in private sessions with various officials.

The explanation, of course, is obvious: Paterson had chosen someone else, told Caroline ahead of time, and she only “withdrew” to save face. Sad.

UPDATE: Sources close to Caroline say she is still in

UPDATE: Out again
