Let me try to keep up with this. First the New York Post and the New York Times said Caroline Kennedy had bowed out of the New York race. Then NBC said: no, seems like it was a misunderstanding between Kennedy and Paterson (helluva a misunderstanding). Then they backed off and said: nope, she’s really out. Now the AP is saying she’s still in.
It is possible that all of this drama is part of a single, highly coordinated plan and constitutes the first withdrawal through self-immolation performance art.
Late Update: Here’s a more detailed run-down from Eric Kleefeld, who has the thankless task of reporting this nonsense as straight news.
