Caroline Who? A Gay Wants Hillary Clinton’s Senate Seat

It’s more than just Caroline Kennedy and Fran Drescher vying for Hillary Clinton‘s soon-to-be vacated U.S. Senate seat. Enter a homo, stage right:

“Assemblyman Daniel J. O’Donnell, a Democrat who represents the Upper West Side. Mr. O’Donnell met with [Gov. David Paterson] for about 45 minutes on Monday afternoon in the governor’s Midtown office for what Mr. O’Donnell said was his formal interview for the Senate seat. To say Mr. O’Donnell, known for his active support of gay rights issues, including same-sex marriage, was overly optimistic about his chances would be a stretch. He put his odds of getting the seat at about one in 10, or “about the same as the population of gay people in the world.” But Mr. O’Donnell did offer that he believes the governor has yet to settle on a final choice.” [NYT]
