Winners & Losers

Back to the business of politics ...

I must confess that I haven't been as up to speed on the New York senate saga, but now that the dust has settled, there are clearly some winners and losers.


Governor Patterson.  The New York Jets are laughing at his incompetence.  This was the worst roll out since Bill Belechick resigned as Jets head coach after 15 minutes on the job.

Caroline Kennedy.  Kennedy's are born with great political instincts.  Except her.  Her "campaign" was mostly a comedy of errors.   If she wants to have a political career in this state, she's going to have to earn it from the ground up.

Barack Obama.  Mr. President was counting on a very friendly vote in the Senate.  He didn't get it.

Mayor Bloomberg.  Went out on a limb for Caroline Kennedy.  Then the limb broke.


Andrew Cuomo.  His camp never leaked, and didn't complain.  Came out smelling like roses.  He's now the most popular elected official in the state.

The Clintons.  They might not be in love with Gillibrand, but they were still seething over Caroline's betrayal during the primary.  They didn't want to see her in that seat.

Senator Gillibrand.  A gift that fell in her lap. Let's see what she does with it.

Chuck Schumer.  Unquestioned top dog in the New York delegation.  Doesn't have to deal with the Kennedy legacy.
