A little Democratic Party "inside baseball"
WCBS-TV in NYC reported:
The good news for Kennedy is that, as Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver told CBS 2 he's changed his mind and is now willing to support her. Silver had been the biggest thorn in Kennedy's side, constantly criticizing her credentials for the Senate position. But now, he's singing a different tune.
"She's obviously very bright and has been around politics her whole life," Silver said.
Sources told CBS 2 HD that Silver's support came after arm twisting by Paterson's staff.
