Omigod omigod omigod Paterson's maybe going to go with Marquise Kennedy-Schlossberg...

I don’t know what wonderful thing I did in a previous lifetime to deserve this gift, but I’m hardly going to pass it up:

Governor may be leaning toward Kennedy

Two people close to Paterson tell AP they believe she’ll be his choice

ALBANY, N.Y. – Officials say the daughter of the late President John F. Kennedy will be the governor’s choice to fill the New York Senate seat being vacated by Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Two people close to Gov. David Paterson tell The Associated Press they believe Caroline Kennedy will be his choice, but the governor cautions he’s still looking.

Allahpundit’s being gloomy about it, but he does that. This is great. Two years of the Marquise! Two years of inarticulate, fumbling blathering while New York reels from the fallout of the Wall Street collapse; two years of constant reinforcement of the reality that this person was picked solely for her willingness to use her maiden name on behalf of the incoming President; two years of inexperience combined with entitlement to produce a tasty incompetence pie. And I’ll bet that she’ll want to actually run for the office in 2010, too.

So please, Governor Paterson. If you won’t give Bill Clinton the seat, give it to her. Please.
