Gillibrand: Maybe Still Not a Very Good Idea

I probably should have worded that a little more strongly (after all, political punditry is for making NEEDLESSLY STRONG DECLARATIVE STATEMENTS IN CAPITAL LETTERS), but honestly, Kirsten Gillibrand just sort of seems like a mediocre Senate pick. Not terrible, but not particularly good, either. Maybe somewhere in the C- range.

And here’s one more reason why: her seat is vulnerable. That’s not a huge deal–like it matters if the Republicans go from 178 to 179 seats–but it’s another reason to wonder if Paterson thought this through, or just went for the choice he thought would piss off the fewest people.
