The New Poster Child for Unqualified Candidates:”Senator” Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg?

Earlier today, I found out that Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg, the 51-year-old environmental lawyer, daughter of President John F. Kennedy and Jackie Onassis (and sister of handsome John Kennedy, Jr.) who has shied away from the political arena for most of her life may be considered to replace Sen. Hillary Clinton for Senate seat

The niece of Edward and Robert Kennedy. The powerful Kennedy clan is fully behind her rising to the office previously held by her uncle, Robert Kennedy who held the New York seat from 1965 until his assassination in 1968. 

Once Clinton is confirmed to President-elect Barack Obama’s cabinet, New York Gov. David Paterson will appoint someone to fill the seat for two years. Democratic officials say Caroline Kennedy has spoken to New York Gov. David Paterson about the Senate seat. Paterson’s office says that the governor had been approached by several candidates for the job but that he would not discuss private conversations.

Of course, since she took on a much more high-profile role during the presidential campaign and, if she does it, would be more than New York’s junior Senator; she’d have closer ties to the Obama White House than any of her colleagues, a direct line to the East Wing.

Ok, so she´s educated. But what are her qualifications, except being the daughter of a President as a child? She’ll probably last two years, to be replaced by future Senator Rudy Giuliani (he has started to schmooze to Obama with his praises). How hypocritical is the media praising Caroline´s interest, while trashing Gov. Sarah Palin´s credentials? Excuse me that many of us have not gone to the famous liberal Harvard University for the elites. 

I am not complaining. In fact, this is AWESOME NEWS. Give the seat to Caroline. If the Dems appoint Caroline to the Senate, Sarah Palin’s credibility will earn massive points! Palin ACTUALLY has experience! If this happens, anytime a liberal or a media rep (and SNL)  mock Sarah’s qualifications, intelligence, or any other quality, the other side can simply point to Caroline and say, “Yeah, well, let’s talk about Caroline.” I mean, let’s face it…if you’ve ever heard Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg speak (without a script–and most of these politicians who were hyped up…ehrm…), then you know she’s not a very bright woman. And if we’re being totally honest she’s really that attractive, either. So wouldn’t it be perfectly delicious if the Dems unconsciously replaced Sarah Palin as the next national laughingstock with the last surviving member of JFK’s family? *Let me start my childhood signing of the cross á la Catholic*

Sarah Palin is smarter than what the media gave her credit for. But then the media thought that Ronald Reagan was stupid, but Reagan outsmarted them every time. Let´s face it, the global financial crisis were  handled by Harvard and other Ivy League alums. We all know that classrooms and real world are VERY different. So pedigrees and grad school doesn´t really mean a lot when it comes to crisis. It is all about character.

Let us see how “fair” the media will treat her, I hope that they give her as much attention as they did to Sarah.

America, welcome to the  new poster child for unqualified and incompetence: Senator Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg!

    Here in New York we love to down our noses to the rest of America however we are this dumb to do something like this and fawn over how wonderful this pick would be. The sad thing, the state GOP is so inept this might work for the Dems in 2010 and 2012.

    That is great! So true…we have watched Ted tear the Kennedy name down for years. Caroline would be a huge disappointment because of all the media hype. John John use to have a very difficult time with the press. I really wonder why at this point in her life she would want to be in the media spot light!

  6. If Obama can become President, surely she can become Senator. Her qualifications? Her father was President, her uncle was Attorney General and another uncle is one of the most infamous Senators while she herself was… wa… nothing! I don’t see a problem in this day and age… Vacuousness wins the day! brains, experience, values, are out!

    Job posting for President and Senator of the USA–no experience necessary. Learn on the job while you screw up things. Your screwups will have no effect on you as you will earn lotsa money from those who want to “buy” your votes. Excellent benefits….(the public can’t access). Send resume to Gov. Patterson (does not matter that he cannot see)….

    Caroline is not an environmental lawyer. She has a law degree, but she has never practiced law.

    You are confusing Caroline with her cousin Bobby Kennedy Jr., an accomplished environmental lawyer.

    So it’s one thing to make fun of Sarah Palin and get upset about her being unqualified…she would have been elected, we’d be choosing someone that’s inexperienced. With this position, the governor is choosing, not the people of NY, so she will not be the new poster child for unqualified candidates. If we were to elect her that’d be another story, but we have no say.

    I was pretty incensed – and honestly still am- at the thought of this woman being given this much authority and political credential with no effort on her part. But I could be ok with it, as the poster points out, it would reveal the ultimate hypocrisy of the media’s criticism of Sarah Palin who actually had credentials; and of the double hypocrisy of criticizing Sarah Palin while lauding Barack Obama [and I am a black Democrat for disclosure]. Funny, I checked the date on the article (when it mentioned that she wasn’t very bright for anyone who’s ever heard her speak) to see if this was before the NY Times transcript of the now infamous interview, and it was several months before [laugh out raucously loud]. It would be laughable to think that someone lacking even a basic level of intellect and eloquence could be given this seat, and Hillary’s seat no less, Hillary who has more than proven herself and her intelligence. So this woman got a degree from Harvard did she? She alludes in the NY Times article that Barack Obama’s “unconventional” election has made it possible, it sure has: We no longer need to look to a record of accomplishment or success in achievement in one’s background to elect them to even the highest office in the land, no.. charisma and an ability to make some good speeches, and in her case, proximity to the unconventionally elected president and coming from the right family will do just fine… Sickening…

    YOU should run…You are so smart and beautiful! I would vote for you and get the world to back you up :*

  16. Loaditr says:

    We have no vote of confidence with that woman. Just because you are Kennedy, it doesn´t mean you can run the State Government! Sheesh! Privileged kids! Grow up!

  17. jonn2 says:

    I think you should run for President someday. You are much more qualified than Obama and that chick!

    I admire a woman who speaks her mind. Keep up the good work, soldier!
