Carolyn bows out of senate race

From the NY Post:

Rep. Carolyn Maloney has decided not to pursue a challenge against appointed Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in the 2010 Democratic primary, just weeks after her advisers were quoting saying she was definitely in the race, The Post has learned.

Maloney released a statement detailing her intentions, in which she gave her reasons for not running -- but did not say she was supporting Gillibrand should she face another challenger.

Understand she recieved calls from all the Democratic bigwigs telling her not to run.

I would 'divide' the party. Besides, God knows what would happen if the public gets a chance at choice, eh?

Dont you like how they interpert the use of the word 'democratic?'

The public can only act in carefully scripted roles.
