    A new Poll of New Yorkers gives Caroline Kennedy an edge..

    Among all registered voters in New York, 33% say Gov. Paterson should name Kennedy to the seat, edging out state Atty. Gen. Andrew Cuomo at 29%.

    However, among Democrats only, it's Kennedy 41% to Cuomo 27%.

    Is the US political system so moribund as to have to rely on the Kennedy Clan for its political candidates?

    Is this for real? The Bush clan the Clintons the Kennedy's......... no wonder you're countries going down the toilet........How many daughters do the Bushes have and has Chelsea been assigned her seat yet?

    Welfare of political clans.........

    In this instance, I use the word "majority" as in the greater part or number. Taking into account there is a long list of potential candidates, I would say 33% isn't bad at all..particularly when it makes you the front runner. Remember too, that among Democrats only, her percentage increases to 41%.
