    Caroline Kennedy to seek Hillary Clinton's Senate seat

    Caroline Kennedy to seek Hillary Clinton's Senate seat

    Caroline Kennedy to seek Hillary Clinton's Senate seat - International Herald Tribune


    Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of an American political dynasty, has decided to pursue the United States Senate seat being vacated by Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, a person told of her decision said on Monday.

    The decision came after a series of deeply personal and political conversations, in which Kennedy, whom friends describe as unflashy but determined, wrestled with whether to give up what has been a lifetime of avoiding the spotlight.

    Kennedy will ask Governor David Paterson of New York to consider her for the appointment, according to the person told of her decision. The governor was traveling to Utica Monday and could not immediately be reached for comment.


    Wow, talk about "Entitlement" garbage. And to think there was no worse senator for NY than Hillary.....

    I'm sorry, but how is this "Entitlement"? The news story only shows that she's throwing her hat in the ring. I didn't see anywhere where she acted entitled or implied that she somehow deserved the position.

    I can't wait for the hypocrisy to begin when Kennedy's credentials are explored. Let's see if all those that insulted Palin's experience will admit that Kennedy has far less.

    She WILL be the next senator from N. Y., no doubt about it. The governor wouldn't dare turn her down.

    Where does it say that is her belief? All I see is that she's throwing her hat in the ring. Why do you care anyway? If she's not qualified and indeed feels that just her name qualifies her for the position as you assert, then you shouldn't have anything to worry about as far as her getting appointed to that position.

    We shall see. And comparing the position of Vice President to a Senator is kind of absurd. That isn't to say that one doesn't have to have qualifications to be a Senator, but your comparison is hardly valid.

    Yeah, I guess it is absurd. Senator's have far more power than V.P s.

    You didn't answer my question. Where does it say that she feels entitled? Surely you aren't getting all of that solely from her submitting herself for consideration, or are you?

    Actually, that's debatable. If the President dies a Senator isn't going to become the President.
