Syracuse was first up on Caroline Kennedy’s tour of upstate Democratic power brokers. (Do you think Matt Driscoll will tell her all about the great new mall we’re building?)
Sean Kirst wonders if she can empathize with our concerns.
The NY Times wonders why she will not talk to them.
I think if Caroline Kennedy wants to be senator, she should be forced to sit down in person and convince NYCO’s Blog CNY why she would be a good senator–The NYCO primary. Holtzman, Kennedy, Velazquez, Brown, Cuomo et all will all be forced to troop up to Fairmount and make their case. After all, NYCO is the dean of CNY bloggers and is definitely not in the tank for Kennedy.
Silly idea? Anything is better than what we have now. A U.S. Senator that New Yorkers can’t vote for, appointed by a governor we didn’t vote for either.
