Sometimes, Even a Liberal Will Surprise You

It pays to have a little (actually, a lot of) humility, and such is the case with the nomination of Kirsten Gillibrand to replace Hillary Clinton in the Senate.

Earlier this week, I predicted that “it’s a given that New York Gov. David Patterson isn’t going to appoint a Republican, or a conservative Democrat for that matter.”  He did the latter, although many of his colleagues in the party aren’t happy with the choice.

I still think that appointing Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg would have been a lot of fun.  This appointment–or more precisely, the blowback from it in the Democrat Party–may also be fun too.
