Caroline Kennedy Withdraws Bid for Senate Seat

UPDATE - 1/21 8:00PM:

The New York Post is reporting that the real reason Caroline Kennedy withdrew her Senate seat bid was because she learned she wouldn't be picked by NY Governor David Paterson. The paper reports that her concerns over her uncle Ted Kennedy's health are not the main reason for her withdrawal:

Caroline Kennedy tonight withdrew her name from consideration to replace Hillary Clinton in the U.S. Senate after learning that Gov. David Paterson wasn't going to choose her, The Post has learned...

Sources said the reason Paterson had decided not to tap the daughter of John F. Kennedy was her poor performances in media interviews and in in private sessions with various officials.
