Between A Rock And A Hard Place

Atlanta Journal Constitution: If Caroline Kennedy wants a Senate seat, she should take Uncle Teddy’s

Quagmire - don't you just love that word? Some say that's where NY Governor David Paterson finds himself. Trying to figure out WHO he should pick to fill Hillary Clinton's Senate Seat. Let's do the math. There are at least seven qualified candidates but two of them posess axes they could wield against our beloved Guv: Should he not select Caroline, the Kennedys could use their vast resources to fund a candidate to run against Paterson when time comes. Andrew Cuomo could decide to run against Paterson if he is not chosen. Anybody have any thoughts on what would play out if the Governor surprised everyone and picked a successor out of left field?

COMMENTING FEES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
