About That Rudy For Senate Idea

A couple of days ago, I mused about the possibility of Rudy Giuliani running for the Senate if Obama names Hillary as his Secretary of State thus creating a vacancy. If the Democrats get to 60 seats, a Hillary vacancy and a Rudy win would put them back at 59.

There's one problem with this scenario.

If Hillary accepts Obama's offer and vacates her seat then New York Governor Paterson will appoint someone to finish Hillary's term which expires in 2012.

There's no way in hell Governor Paterson appoints a Republican to fill this vacancy.

Governor Paterson might be blind but he's not stupid.
