More on Caroline Kennedy's bow out from Senate run

Thursday, January 22, 2009

For more on the vacant U.S. Senate seat, WNYC's Brian Lehrer joins us in the studio for his take on Caroline Kennedy's withdrawal and what it means for New York and for Ms. Kennedy. Was it political blow-back that made her change her name? Or was it the possibility that she flubbed her job interview? Todd Zwillich, from Capitol News Connection, contributes his thoughts on the replacement process from Washington, D.C.

"I don't think it was because her Uncle Ted is sick, I think if anything that would have been an inspiration for her to try to get the seat to follow in the family tradition."
