OK, so we know Junior Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton from New York. But what do we think about Junior Senator William Jefferson Clinton from New York?
The rumor mill is running full bore with this tidbit--he may snag Hill's vacant spot for himself. Could Bill make his own way back to Washington after all?
Word has it that there are several biggies that covet this position, including RFK Jr and Andrew Cuomo, that Bill would have to contend with. Perhaps even Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg.
Chuck Schumer will mostly likely be the biggest anti-Bill voice--why would he want to be the senior Senator to someone, well, more "senior" than himself? And we're not talking age...
Its all about ego, folks.

Governor Paterson is keeping his cards close to his chest on this one, but did have this to say:
"I'm looking for someone that will inspire other people, who is a steadfast, disciplined worker, who has knowledge of the state, who is one that sees the imagination as being more important in history and probably favors hope over experience,” said Paterson.
Now, who more closely embodies these qualities than the remaining child of Camelot?
