Caroline, Paterson Meet

Could this be the final audition? Caroline Kennedy met with New York Gov. David Paterson yesterday at around 2 p.m. to talk about Hillary Clinton’s vacated U.S. Senate seat. As The Times notes, it was an important summit for Kennedy, “whose uneven public audition for the job—including a campaign-style swing through upstate New York and a series of difficult interviews with reporters—punctured [her] early air of inevitability.” Paterson has already had formal sit-downs with a half dozen candidates, including Steve Israel and Carolyn Maloney, but had yet to meet Kennedy face to face.
