Kirsten Gillibrand has taken Hillary's Senate seat--an odd choice. I was glad that Caroline Kennedy didn't get it just because I'm opposed to the creation of political families, but Gillibrand is quite a disappointment. During her time in the House, she was a member of the Blue Dog coalition that supported eaves-dropping on innocent Americans and the idiotic FISA Amendments Act of 2008 that provided immunity to large telecom companies.
