In New York City today, U.S. Airways Captain C.B. “Sully” Sullenberger successfully made an emergency crash landing into the Hudson River after Flight 1549’s engines failed following a freakish collison with a flock of Canadian geese. Amazingly, all 155 passengers and crew survived.
Do you think Capt. Sullenberger could manage to help President-Elect Obama give our economy a successful crash landing, avoiding castrophe? If so, maybe New York Governor David Paterson should appoint Capt. Sullenberger to Hillary Clinton’s Senate seat.
I mean, I don’t think Caroline Kennedy or Andrew Cuomo could save 155 lives.
Now, of course Capt. Sullenberger is currently a resident of California, but that shouldn’t be an obstacle. Remember, Sen. Clinton was an Arkansas resident before she decided she was a New Yorker.
So I say, Sullenberger for Senate!
