Later on today, Governor Paterson is expected to appoint Congresswoman Kirsten Gillibrand to fill Hillary Clinton's senate seat. Wayne Barrett, a senior editor at the Village Voice, and Irene Jay Liu, a political writer at the Times Union and a blogger for Capitol Confidential, discuss Gillibrand's politics and record--and talk about what kind of senator she's likely to be. Congressman Anthony Weiner weighs in as well.
