Washington Post writer needs an eye exam – Kennedy and Gillbrand

Today, Anne E. Kornblut over at the Washington Post questioned if a glass ceiling in American politics still existed since Caroline Kennedy was knocked pretty hard as she was being considered as a replacement senator for the state of New York.

Kennedy – female? check.
Gillbrand – female? check.

Hot Air reminds us that Gov. David Paterson (Dem, N.Y.) thought it was important to select a female for the position.

Exit question: Would there be an uproar if a male held the Senate seat before, and Paterson stated that he thought it was important to select a male candidate?
