The Next NY Senator Should Be…

ith all of the speculation of Hillary going to the State Department, the question of who would replace her has become a hot topic. I don’t think she’s going (despite all the buzz), but if she does, I want to lay down who should be the next Senator.

Now, I’m inclined for our Governor, David Paterson, to choose a Republican (Giuliani or Pete Lopez), but it seems unlikely. So, since the Senator will be a Democrat, I hope Paterson chooses himself. Paterson was originally named to be Lieutenant Governor so he could be named to the Senate when Hillary became President.

So Paterson could become New York’s next Senator. He can choose any non-felon resident of the state that is over 30. Paterson is popular in New York and would easily be reelected in 2012. He is smart, determined, and has shown strength as a fiscal conservative. He is likable and has acted in a bipartisan manner, despite NY’s natural inclinations to the Left.

Paterson would do well as a Senator and this would leave the Governor’s mansion up to Giuliani to run for the next go-around.
