Says Kennedy called him Monday, adding: “It’s not a campaign. She’d like at some point to sit down.”
But: TIME’s Tumulty reports that “one source close to the Kennedy family says Caroline believes Paterson is ‘on board with the idea.'”
Comes after NY Times reports Kennedy wants to be considered for the position.
