She's a Princess, You Know

So Patterson is leaning towards Caroline according to report:
That's big of her, since last time she was asked about running in 2010 she told NY1 "Well, if he doesn't select me, I would support the person that he does select." So she will only run if she's given the advantage of incumbency, because she's a Kennedy. It just wouldn't be right to accept a level playing field, but, given the advantage of incumbency, she will be more than happy to 'prove herself,' after the fact, to the voters of New York.
It would be an embarrassment for the Democratic party, which suddenly seems to know nothing but since November 4. But for Republicans, the possibility of Franken, Caroline, and Burris all making it into the Senate is like hitting the trifecta -- incompetence, nepotism, and corruption, respectively, will be the buzzwords for our new Democratic Senate.
