Caroline Kennedy Withdraws Her Name From Consideration to Senate

No matter how you slice it, Caroline Kennedy will NOT replace Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the US Senate.

The New York Times cited personal reasons:

Her concerns about Senator Edward M. Kennedy's deteriorating health (he was hospitalized after suffering a seizure during President Obama’s inaugural lunch on Tuesday ) prompted her decision to withdraw, this person said. Coping with her uncle’s condition was her most important priority, a situation not conducive to starting a high profile public job.

But The New York Post is reporting that another factor might be in play.

Caroline Kennedy tonight withdrew her name from consideration to replace Hillary Clinton in the U.S. Senate after learning that Gov. David Paterson wasn't going to choose her, The Post has learned.

During the last few weeks, the media had reported is was all but a certainty that Ms. Kennedy would be Gov. Paterson's choice.

As of today, the Governor remains "clueless".
