Caroline Kennedy’s cousin has reported that Caroline is interested in being appointed to Hilary Clinton’s Senate Seat, which will have to be vacated before she can assume duties as Secretary of State in the incoming Obama administration. Kennedy is being pushed as someone who would work hard on education issues in the U.S. Senate.
My two cents: The only work that should be done in the U.S. Senate for education is making sure that the federal government doesn’t get involved in it. If Ms. Kennedy wants to do something about education she should run for Governor of New York or the New York Statehouse. Education is a state matter NOT a federal one. Also, there is already one to many Kennedy’s in the Senate. I shudder to think of all the Kennedy’s that would come out of the woodwork to support Ms. Kennedy in a 2010 election.
