After weeks of guessing and pundit speak, sources close to Governor Paterson say the final choice has been made to replace the next Sec. of State, Hillary Clinton. The next New York Senator will (drumroll please) indeed be Caroline Kennedy.

Officials say the daughter of the late President John F. Kennedy will be the governor’s choice to fill the New York Senate seat being vacated by Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Two people close to Gov. David Paterson tell The Associated Press they believe Caroline Kennedy will be his choice, but the governor cautions he’s still looking.

I personally believe she is an excellent choice. Yes, she is new to the whole politics game but that’s what makes her a smart choice. She is coming from outside the loop with a much needed fresh approach.
