Normally she'd be up for re-election in 2012, however if Barack Obama picks
her as running mate and the Obama/Clinton ticket wins over everyone who
JOHN McCAIN could choose, even if its a tight margin, would this trigger a
special election for HER senate seat if Ms. HILLARY CLINTON then has the choise
of living in the BLAIR HOUSE or the NAVAL OBSERVATORY??? --- Do we have a
list of people who could run as rEVOLUTIOn candidates for HILLARY's seat???

DAVID GAY sr. is admittedly postioning himself where he could perhaps run as
a Libertarian or for the G.O.P in 2012, however if he's months short of being 30 years of
age come the special election i think has a fifty/fifty of being on the breeze... i think
we need to also have at least one other candidate situated as to run for the seat.
David Gay sr. is in the local press http://www.syrauce.com/news/index.ssf?/base/news-0/1208768132326570.xml&coll=1
and if i am reading the news clipping article correctly, he's young, a go-getter, made quite a
splash here, but he'd be only 28 at best were HILLARY to say yes to the veep position!!!
I THINK WE NEED TO SERIOUSLY HAVE A LIST UP! THE SEAT COULD BE VERY OPEN!

Teddy Kennedy was on the floor of the Senate recently. he may run again for HIS seat
despite his age. --- Ms. Hillary Clinton WILL run for the Senate again UNLESS the Cabinet, the
Vice-Presidency or the WHITE HOUSE is there for her... we need to keep in mind candidates
for the fifty-fifty hypothetical SPECIAL ELECTION as well as the 2012 senate seat elections.

No clue, I haven't been hearing anything regarding his seat here in Illinois.

Senate special elections coincide with the next General Election. The state legislature or governor appoint the temporary Senator until the next Federal Election.

allen keyes could run again! even so... we need to keep a watchful eye on new york, illinois and arizona.
mitt romney seems to have an edge yet he's between positions... quite clearly 2010 would have as
nate895 noted senate elections in illinois and new york insted of arizona and mayhap maybe a special election
elsewhere for a governorship. --- if we are talking 2010, then it seems highly likely that David Gay sr.
could run in NY if he wants to, given that he'd be thirty when sworn in! we need to keep our options open!

What qualifies him to be a United States Senator?

methinks his youth, his vim, his vigor, his vitality. admittedly the shortness of his resume is sorta like the paucity of experiance that is barack obama's main forte but in his for instace i feel he is more attuned to the ideals of the rEVOLUTIOn!!! henseforth until someone more experianced steps into the fray, i shall be very "hoosier" about David Gay sr. in terms of a senate run!!! i have almost declared for TEDDY's seat come 2012 and until Kade actually throws his hat in the ring... i just might run! merrily an' happily! methinks you gotta luv someone who directly pitched his fundraiser plea to rEVOLUTIOn people each state in our union here! when he tried to get on the G.O.P ballot in NY state, he was creative! if he feels the effort is too vast an' extensive an undertaking, i can see why!!! it helps to have an ego in politics!!!

what qualifies any of the lot for their senate position other than they perhaps are over the age of 30?
Yongrel, seriously, we do presume a jeffersonian meritocracy! sometimes this is and has been a misnomer...

I like my elected officials to have a demonstrated ability to interpret and write informed public policy positions and analyses, ala Ron Paul.

That's why I like BJ Lawson.

is Lawson in NY state and poised where he could run for Hillary Clinton's seat? i know he's well written, yet he's in North Carolina!
i could bounce up some old links where David Gay sr. explained his candidacy for a house seat in the upper mid-section of Ny state
that is near the finger lakes. he had a favorable meantion in the local press and he was actively campaigning. offhand i'd have thought Vern McKinley could have had a debater's edge over Amit Singh even though both were on the same page concerning the issues.

amit and vern were in virginia districts side to side near D.C --- the vote was interesting. amit lost by 1000 votes to a fellow newbie
who ALSO claimed to be a ron paul republican, the G.O.P run-off was roughly 3000 to 2000 and amit was the lower figure. vern mckinley spent perhaps $50,ooo and lost by a ten to one ratio to a deepseated REPUBLICAN incumbant who'd been there since the early 1980s. the difference was the perception of the voters as to the institution of seniority as well as a name recognition and familiarity, i feel. Rep. Wolf may eventually be retired yet it may not be this year, and this november's democrat. ~~~ http://wolf.house.gov/ i can't crystal ball all, yet i feel politics likes bold thinking!

The rules for openings in the Senate in NY are that the Governor chooses a replacement until the next election. Originally the role of the Senate was to represent state rights but was decapitated with the 17th Amendment. The states longer have direct representation in Congress as the Senate is now voted by popular vote rather than state legislators.

Ted Kennedy has a brain tumor. I doubt he will be running again.

don't forget he's a Kennedy. don't count him out. he's still very much in command of his own life.
as i said, i'm willing to take on ALL his brainmatter and the brainmatter of his top 100 aides and staffers...
in 2012... EVEN if i don't have even a slim chance at success... as i said, Kade is in my thoughts!

Kade is my back-up plan! one of us has gotta run Republican...in 2012!!!

Former New York Congressman John Leboutillier who has written extensively about Ron Paul could run for the New York Senate Seat.

He has been friends with Ron Paul.
