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.
