No Elected Officials?

Last time I got to vote to elect local officials, I voted for Hillary Clinton as my Senator and Elliot Spitzer as governor. Spitzer resigned after having sex with a prostitute and was replaced by David Paterson. Clinton will be leaving her seat to become Secretary of State and Paterson will appoint her replacement.

So, an unelected governor is going to appoint my senator? Worse, people think he's going to appoint Caroline Kennedy whose only qualification is that she was born a Kennedy.

We need a special election.
