AS FOR HILLARY'S SEAT ...

As speculation continues to build as to whether or not First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton will run for the Senate seat from New York, Mrs. Clinton herself issued a statement Tuesday to set the record straight (for now, sort of): “I am deeply gratified by the large number of people who have encouraged me to consider running for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan. Until now, I have not been able to do so, but I will give careful thought to a potential candidacy in order to reach a decision later this year. In the meantime, I intend to continue to focus my attention on the issues central to the president’s agenda and on which we have worked together for many years.”
