While I naturally would've preferred someone from our own backyard, and while I've never heard of Gillibrand before, I have to say that I'm genuinely impressed with Paterson's choice--and that's something I don't get to say very often at all!

She's honest about the correlation between her campaign contributions and voting record. She doesn't vote on party lines. She voted against the TARP idiocy, especially. And her legal career appears sterling. Being Polly Noonan's grandkid doesn't hurt her image, either, to be honest.

She also has the right opponents; anybody who irritates Carolyn "What Bill of Rights?" McCarthy is OK in my book. I just hope she can keep her head on straight dealing with the Senate on a regular basis.


Like the Governor, I didn't see that coming.
