Caroline Kennedy: The Senator from New York?


Kennedy Is Said to Cast Her Eye on Senate Seat

Published: December 5, 2008

Caroline Kennedy, a daughter of America’s most storied political family who for many years fiercely guarded her privacy, is considering whether to pursue the Senate seat expected to be vacated by Hillary Rodham Clinton early next year, a family member said Friday.

“I believe that she is considering it,” said her cousin Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who has spoken to Ms. Kennedy about the matter during the past week. “A lot of people the last couple of weeks have urged her to do it.”

Ms. Kennedy called Gov. David A. Paterson on Wednesday to discuss the position, Mr. Paterson confirmed Friday. The governor will choose a replacement for Mrs. Clinton upon her expected confirmation as secretary of state next month.

“The conversation was informational,” Mr. Paterson said. “She did not express an interest in the Senate, but we talked about the Senate, so I got that she was just trying to get some information to determine whether or not she would like to have an interest in it. And that was it.”

He added, “I haven’t offered the job to anyone.” Read More.

    Caroline Kennedy’s resume (from wikipedia):
    B.A. from Harvard University
    J.D. from Columbia Law School
    Wrote two books with Ellen Alderman:
    * In Our Defense: The Bill of Rights In Action (1990)
    * The Right to Privacy (1995)
    Edited several books, wrote one on the Kennedy family.
    Currently President of the Kennedy Library Foundation, a director of both the Commission on Presidential Debates and the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, and Honorary Chairman of the American Ballet Theatre. She is also an adviser to the Harvard Institute of Politics, a living memorial to her father.

    The Senate would not only be getting another Kennedy and all the stuff that goes along with that but also Jackie’s daughter, A girl raised at arms length from the rest of the clan. She would probably be the first Kennedy to serve in the Senate or House who has not been to rehab since Bobby back in 1968.
    She would be great, if she wants it.
