Caroline Kennedy, who was the daughter of JFK, is seeking to be appointed to the open senate seat that will become available when/if NY Sen. Hillary Clinton is confirmed as Barack Obama's Secretary of State.
With all that was said about Sarah Palin's lack of experience by the democrats when she was selected to run as VP along with McCain, you'd think that leading democrats would come out against that selection. I'm hoping good judgement will prevail here rather than "good politics".
Here's what one Obama supporter said on the subject of Ms. Kennedy's qualifications:
“My knowledge of her in the area of education and on behalf of children generally, the fact that she has written several books, and her other civic involvement more than qualifies her to be senator,” Al Sharpton said in an e-mail.
Now, perhaps there are things I don't know about Ms. Kennedy. Betsy Muse has me working "Google" now but for the life of me, I can't imagine that there wouldn't be just a NUMBER of other far more qualified and deserving democratic candidates.
