Hold the phone -- A Gillibrand primary after all?

Wait -- maybe appointed U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand might get a Democratic primary opponent after all now that Jonathan Tasini has shifted his sights towards the Rep. Charles Rangel seat. The name is Gail Goode, she's at Mayor Michael Bloomberg's corporation-counsel office, and she's African-American from The Bronx. Bloomberg's minyans have been working to knock Gillibrand off-balance since she was picked instead of their preference, Caroline Kennedy. Not that there's any connection of course.
