Much has been written on both the left and right about the possibility of Caroline Kennedy being appointed to fill Hillary Clinton's vacant Senate seat. Well, no longer, as Kennedy has now officially withdrawn her name from consideration.
Caroline Kennedy withdrew from consideration for the U.S. Senate seat once held by her slain uncle, Bobby Kennedy, after a night of turmoil and uncertainty over her intentions.
"I informed Governor Paterson today that for personal reasons I am withdrawing my name from consideration for the United States Senate," she said in a one-sentence statement released after midnight. Her spokesman, Stefan Friedman, wouldn't comment further.
