Paterson answers more questions on Hillary’s Senate seat
December 8 Gov. David Paterson answered a number of questions about Hillary Clinton’s Senate seat at a news conference in New York City this morning.
Paterson met with Haitian community leaders at his office regarding New York’s efforts to help Haiti, which was hit hard during hurricane season this year.
This is what the governor said when asked about reports that Caroline Kennedy would not be aggressive enough to be senator. (Clinton was recently tapped by President-elect Barack Obama to be secretary of state, and Paterson is responsible for appointing a replacement.)
“Well I mean I don’t know who are the authors of these reports. Except it’s always like, a source close to the governor. Well, there aren’t really that many people close to me, and I don’t know how many of them know the particular party involved.
I think President Obama and Mayor Bloomberg have spoken very highly of an individual who has not at this point attempted to make themselves a candidate, so I think that in terms of my time period, I am closer only in the sense that I am starting to talk to some of my colleagues and some civic and business and labor leaders around the state to just elicit who they think would be a good choice; but I don’t know that I’m closer to the final decision because it is probably better in these situations to be deliberate and to take time and for those to step forward and express their willingness to serve, to give them an opportunity to, perhaps, maybe come in and talk to me one-to-one.”
The governor was asked if he’d thought about people for the position who aren’t elected officials.
“Absolutely. Elected office is not the only place that people have distinguished themselves and can serve the public. We have a mayor right now in this city who was not an elected official before he became mayor;
we have a former mayor before him who was a prosecutor who became an elected official;
my predecessor had only come into government eight years before he became governor, and I’m holding a position for which I wasn’t elected to currently, but plan on clearing that up in a couple years.
The governor was asked to discuss when he would begin one-on-one interviews with potential appointees.
“No, because now we’re getting into the weeds.
First it’s tell us who the candidates are, tell us what time you’re meeting with them, tell us whether or not you’ve talked to them before. This is all gossip. And frankly, this is a serious issue which I think is starting to be treated as some sort of reality TV show. No, this is the reality of life.
And the point is, I don’t know when my schedule will allow me to meet with people, I don’t know who’s interested, who didn’t ask me, I mean the speculation on the speculation, I think, is getting a little bit out of hand.
We have a distinguished senator, who by the way was ridiculed all over the place when she was chosen as a candidate back in 2000 but won, and now everyone rightly says these are big shoes to fill, so even when the candidate is chosen, let me save all of you who will be highly critical of it, the fact that, you can criticize the result of any appointment, the better time to assess it would be years afterward when the individual gets the opportunity to serve.”
