Caroline Kennedy’s senate campaign went so disastrously that she could not, you know, even end it without massive confusion. After word broke that Kennedy was withdrawing from the competition for Hillary Clinton’s senate seat, a family source told NBC News that she had not, in fact, withdrawn and that reports of her withdrawal were based on a “miscommunication.” NBC later revised its report to say that she was really out, but then at 10:38 p.m., the Associated Press issued an alert saying that Kennedy “remains in contest.” As of this morning, Kennedy is really out, citing “personal reasons” for her withdrawal, though the New York Post is reporting that she withdrew only after Governor David Paterson informed her she would not be his choice.
