Senator Caretaker

On the face of it, I guess the idea to appoint a placeholder to keep Clinton’s Senate seat warm until the 2010 election isn’t a bad one … but what’s up with this short list?

Who might be in the mix? I doubt the former president would accept the gig, but the AP report said some of the name circulating in New York political circles include retired judge Judith Kaye and former Nebraska Sen. Bob Kerrey, now president of the New School in New York City, where he’s proving to be not especially popular. [Emphasis mine.]

Yes, because if the last Congress had one problem, it was insufficient Bob Kerrey levels.
