Well, the front-runner for the Junior Senator from New York, Caroline Kennedy, the flamboyant in-experienced Liberal that she is, announced that she is dropping out of the race to become the next Senator due to personal problems/issues within the family. Meaning the race for New York's next Senator is wide open, so I propose instead of Paterson appointing someone, and 21 months later we have the special election, then 2 years after that we have another election, why not plan a special election in May of this year, so both the GOP and Democrats vote for their candidate, and avoid another election next year?
I doubt they will do this. But lets see what happens.
