Sweet Caroline

Rumor has it, Caroline Kennedy might be on the short list to replace Hillary Clinton in the Senate.
I think it's an amazing idea.
We've held Caroline in our hearts since she was a toddler in the White House.
Her political pedigree is priceless and she's grown up to be a poised, intelligent woman.
I believe New York and America would be lucky to have her serving in the Senate.
It's time for Caroline to come full circle and fulfill her destiny, don't you think?

to tell the truth, i really don't like the idea. i have nothing against caroline, but i think there are more deserving candidates. i think a senate seat should be earned. i would rather see bobby, jr. get it if it has to be a kennedy getting the seat. he has done a lot of work on the ecology. howevah, i really would rather see someone who has not come from a privileged background get it. someone who knows what it is to have to worry about feeding his/her kids, paying the mortgage, and having heat in the winter. of course, i no longer live in new yawk, so i don't get a vote.

I absolutely adore her.

I think the Kennedys have a rich history of serving the common folk regardless of their family wealth.
I like Bobby Jr. but as a woman I prefer Caroline as a Senator because she has the empathy of a mother and the culture to demand more funding for the arts-which have been totally ignored for 8 years or more.
Besides, a female Senator should be replaced by another female. White men in politics have had enough stuff handed to them.
It's time to let the women fuck things up for a change.

i think she is great --- and would be a terrific senator. one of the things i like best about her is the fact she DOESNT like the limelight - that she would work and be happy to be outta the spotlight....

jackie should be so proud of her kids

I am with Nonnie on this.

Bobby Jr has turned it down already however.

This isn't to say she doesn't do a lot now in the public interest. I just don't think she is the best candidate in these troubled times.

But then...not being a politician is probably a good thing eh?

Damn, I hate when I can't make up my little mind. ;p

Don't know. I think of her more in her capacity of keeper of family treasures and editor.

I don't know where she stands on issues of public policy.

I also worry about her safety.

Lots of safety to worry about these days.

The Kennedy men have hogged up the limelight in their family long enough. Caroline is a class act and probably more intelligent than most of the Kennedy men. She lacks experience but that's what they said about her daddy and uncle Bobby and they did just fine. Come on NY, give her chance.
