PunditMom’s Spin Cycle Friday — Does David Paterson Really Want to Cross the Kennedys?

Moms & Politics


I have a feeling the Kennedy family is going to have a few choice words for New York Governor David Paterson. After leading her to believe she was the front runner, Paterson now says Caroline Kennedy was “not ready for prime time.” OUCH!

Gender discrimination in public schools? SCOTUS says, mmm, not so much.

Have a few minutes over lunch today? I’ll be talking with Gloria Feldt, the former president of Planned Parenthood at BlogTalk Radio on her thoughts on how progressive women should view the new Obama administration. Join us at noon!

The RNC is still trying to decide who’s going to head up the party for the next four years.

The Obama administration had been invited by the court system to redefine “enemy combatant.” This is way more than just interesting — courts hardly ever do something like this. Even our judicial system has had enough of the Bush years?

“OOPS, I did it again,” isn’t really a good response when a nurse who is openly anti-abortion, and who thinks IUDs are a form of abortion, removes a patients IUD without her permission.

And at dinner tonight, raise a glass to Lilly Ledbetter!

    Somehow I had a feeling that Caroline Kennedy was not going to be the Senator. I think Gov. Paterson was right in taking his time on the decision and he probably made a good choice. While she is smart and a lovely person maybe she doesn’t have the political “chops” needed for that position. And I think the Gov. didn’t want it smelling of patronage in any way, shape or form after the whole Blago scandal.
