Caroline Kennedy reportedly withdrawing from Senate consideration
OK. Curious move. There must be some explanation.
According to reports from two New York City newspapers, Kennedy decided to withdraw because of the illness of her uncle, Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass.
Certainly, Teddy's illness is of great family concern, but correct me if I'm wrong: Wasn't Kennedy gravely ill before Caroline threw her hat in the ring to become Senator?
Surely, there's more to this story than what is being reported.
UPDATE: A friend on Twitter writes "Want to bet that NY Gov. Paterson decided against naming Kennedy and this is a face-saving way for her to bow out?" Makes sense to me.
Which might also indicate, announcement coming soon. My bets are on Cuomo.
