I find it ironic and disengenuous that the Hillarycrat detractors of Caroline Kennedy, a New York resident for over four decades, would have the temerity to suggest that the Harvard University educated author, lawyer, and philanthropist lacks the necessary qualifications to represent New York State in the United States Senate. Ms. Kennedy has always been a dignified, understated and classy mover and shaker that has used her celebrity, talent, and money to help other people. Politically, nobody could beat her under any circumstances. She can raise the money and would maintain the current number of women in the senate, which is already too few. Where the hell were these people when Hillary decided to accept the phony draft of New Yorkers to run for the Senate in a state she had never lived in? Caroline Kennedy has been a New Yorker longer than the Queen of Triangulation has been a blond. I am relieved that she has decided to throw her hat in the ring. If David Paterson is smart, he’ll appoint Caroline without any more deliberation and secure his re-election at the same time.
