Sen. Harry Reid is lobbying for Caroline Kennedy to join the Senate and take the seat soon to be vacated by Sen. Hillary Clinton in New York. He's even gone so far as to call Governor David Paterson about it, apparently on his own. Here's what he said to Jon Ralston on Las Vegas 1 about her:

HR: “She's 52 years old. I've spoken to her. She was part of a vetting process for vice presidential choices for Obama. She's lived in government and politics her whole life. I think it would be a tremendous thing. ... We have a lot of stars from New York. Bobby Kennedy. Hillary Clinton. I think Caroline Kennedy would be perfect. “

JR: “So, are you going to call the governor of New York and say, ’She's fine in my book?’”

HR: “I already have.”

Can you help us out?
