Hillary Clinton gave back Caroline Kennedy money after Obama endorsement
Read the whole post, which details why the behavior of Caroline Kennedy has only resulted in her shooting herself in the foot--repeatedly. And why Governor Patterson isn't as boxed in as others think:
Paterson isn't in thrall to the Kennedy clan because he comes from a political dynasty himself. His father, Basil Paterson, was a state senator, a New York City deputy mayor under Ed Koch and New York secretary of state. Along with David Dinkins (Mayor 1989 - 1993), Percy Sutton (Manhattan Borough President 1965-1977) and Rep. Charles B. Rangel (now chairman of the powerful tax-writing Ways and Means Committee), the elder Paterson formed a potent political force that schooled his son in the nuances, benefits and perils of power politics.
Political dynasties teach their members two important lessons: independence and the importance of loyalty. So don't be shocked if Paterson defies expectations and picks someone who is politically loyal to him -- not to a legendary uncle and not to a president who's candidacy gained momentum after a stunning endorsement -- and to the interests of New York State.
I leave you with vintage Hillary Rodham schooling the haters*:
*Yes, any Democrat who stood silently by in the face of an all-out media smear campaign, RBC fraud and corruption, and heinous misogynistic bigotry is a "hater."
