From NBC's Mark Murray
NBC's Andrea Mitchell just spoke with New York Gov. David Paterson, who she reports will make a decision to fill Hillary Clinton's Senate seat on Friday or Saturday.
For a while, we thought Paterson might be making his announcement on air in his interview with NBC's Mitchell, but we quickly realized he was joking. "I have reached a decision. I thought that since there are just 17 women in the Senate... I am going to go with Michelle Obama."
