Dynastics

New York is facing a momentous decision by its empowered executive. The question is, who will Basil Paterson's son appoint to succeed Bill Clinton's wife: Mario Cuomo's son or John F. Kennedy's daughter?

The real question is, will New York ever produce another original leader?

It's worse than I thought: Cuomo is also Robert F. Kennedy's son-in-law, hence married to Caroline Kennedy's cousin.

Didn't we fight a revolution about this sort of thing?
