Dan Slater from the WSJ Law Blog interviewed New York’s chief Judge Judith Kaye today on what she will do next now that she is retiring.
Two weeks ago I said she should be considered for Hillary’s Senate seat, with Caroline Kennedy being a particularly bad choice. (See, Chief Judge Judith Kaye — For U.S. Senate)
And the last question Slater asked was on that point. And the Chief Judge kept the door open with this non-answer:
We’ve heard rumors that you might replace Hillary Clinton in the senate.
I’m not thinking yet about my chapter three. You’re still talking to the chief judge, Dan. Have some respect. [Laughter]
