Update Thursday morning: Kennedy officially announced early this morning that's she's out.
That's the word going around Wednesday evening. So, what happened?
Well, the depends on who you're reading. The New York Times says Kennedy bowed out of the non-race to replace Hillary Clinton because she's concerned about the health of her uncle, Ted Kennedy (he had a seizure yesterday during the inaugural festivities.) NYT also reports that Kennedy believed the seat to be hers if she wanted it.
But the New York Post is reporting that Caroline found out she was not going to get the seat and then decided to drop out.
The New York Daily News? It's reporting there's confusion over what exactly has happened.
And NBC (David Gregory, specifically) is reporting that Caroline has NOT dropped out.
By the way, Hillary Clinton was confirmed by the full Senate today for Secretary of State. She resigned her Senate seat right after -- which now clears the way for David Paterson to name her replacement. He's said the choice should be public this weekend.
