If appointed, Ms. Kennedy would fill the seat once held by her uncle, Robert F. Kennedy. Get this, The NY Times reports, Ms. Kennedy has been making calls this morning to alert political figures to her interest. Ms. Kennedy’s decision is likely to have a major impact on the governor’s considerations as he mulls who should succeed Mrs. Clinton. Already, some other Democrats have pointedly questioned her credentials for the job. United States Representative Gary Ackerman, a Queens Democrat, said last week that he did not know what Ms. Kennedy’s qualifications were, “except that she has name recognition — but so does J. Lo.” Should Caroline Kennedy Be The Next U.S. Senator From NY because she is a "Kennedy"? Should a Black American Be The Next U.S. Senator From NY, because he or she is a "black American?
