Camelot continues!!!!

It's official. The New York Times is reporting that JFK and Jackie O's daughter, Caroline Kennedy, is going to pursue the U.S. senate seat being vacated by Hillary Clinton when she assumes the role of Secretary of State in Barack Obama's new administration next month.

New York Governor David A. Paterson will select Hillary's successor. If appointed, Caroline would fill the seat once held by her uncle, the late Robert F. Kennedy.

Do U think she's experienced enough for the position????

    Cool, love her. Hate her uncle though.



  2. 2

    she grew up in that atmosphere… that's experience



  3. 3

    Expierence doesn't seem to matter anymore..
    I mean Arnold as "The Govenator" and Tim McGraw wanting to run also..
    She's got more expierence than the both of them..
    I hope she wins!



  4. 4

    The only experience she has is her name. She went to law school, never practiced law. Wrote a book on privacy. She must be bored with her life.



  5. 5

    how can u "hate" robert f kennedy "alice" u werent even alive when he was i'm sure? and u use the term "hate" so loosely when he was a great man who did alot for people and was murdered? thats an awful thing to hate someone who is dead whom u didnt even know?!



  6. 6

    And her qualifications are? She has been notorious for shunning publicity, and now she just wants to walk into the job? hillary came from a famous family also, but at least she worked her ass off to get elected in NY.



  7. 7

    Heard this already…. Perez, get a more reliable source if your gonna act like you were 1st in delivering the news…



  8. 8

    Yes! She has an extremely impressive resume and would make a great senator!

    lack of experience didn't stop obama.

    Ugh. The only thing she is qualified to run for is on the PTA board at her kids school.



  11. 11

    I don't even think the Dog Catcher Hussein Obama is qualified to be President so what makes this any different. Not to fret my friends. 1/20/12 is only 4 short years away. Hussein's last day.



  12. 12

    She is about as qualified as Obama and Clinton were when they became Senators. In other words less qualified than Sarah Palin.
    See Truth According To T o m



  13. 13

    she's never run for ANY elected office. just because she comes from a famous family doesn't make her qualified. let her work her way up like everyone else.



  14. 14

    whatever you say perez…..you are so unbiased and fair in your opinions……i'm sure you will do your due diligence before embracing her with a big faggy bear hug and a giggle



  15. 15

    I think she is stepping up because her Uncle Ted is dying! Plus her children are older. I'll bet she will be a fast learner. Time will tell.



  16. 16

    Re: jessejames82 – I think alice meant Ted, who is a moron.



  17. 17

    A politically astute appointment, YES. Will have to see how she fares in an election later.



  18. 18

    Re: _Alice_;) hey sista



  19. 19

    Definitely! She smart, knolwdegable of constitution and has political savvy! She NO Sarah Palin who got into office althoug she is an idiot!



  20. 20

    She's got politics in her blood. Growing up around it she's probably absorbed more of it by osmosis than some people who have studied it. She may have shunned publicity but that doesn't mean she wasn't behind the scenes learning. One has nothing to do with the other. She's obviously a very bright woman. Maybe she will bring something new to the table. Who knows? I think she's as qualified as some others have been, probably more in some cases.



  21. 21

    NO.



  22. 22

    ok, seriously….

    what is she wearing? is she a lady bug?

    how come i'm the only one who is noticing this??



  23. 23

    Depends…how many babies has she killed??



  24. 24

    The only reason she is even being considered is because of her last name. She is not qualified.



  25. 25

    Re: mamajud – hey mama! what's new?



  26. 26

    YAY :)
    great news
    She will be perfect for the senate
    what could be better?



  27. 27

    @jessejames82:

    @alice probably means she "hates" Teddy Kennedy, not Bobby.

    Teddy has made some terrible decisions in his life. The Chappaquiddick thing was a serious lapse of morality no matter what religion a person may or may not follow. It almost destroyed his career, rightfully so. Teddy's alcoholism and treatment of women has always been questionable, but Kennedy men in general have always lived the Madonna/whore lifestyle full force and got a full pass by the State of Massachusetts.

    not by the whole USA, though. There are lots of us who see the Kennedy's as what they are: filthy rich & super privileged. The money bought the power, plain & simple, but they are raised to be so competitive within the family, they stay in politics and public service to try to outdo one another. It's not coo in their familyl to just snooze on the yacht all day.

    Carolyn got bit by the Kennedy competion bug this year. She got the adrenalin rush giving the speech endorsing Obama this year. What she really offers is connections
    up the wazoo. She's very well-educated, but never had a day job. Like her mother, too, it seems she wants to have something to do during the day now that her children are grown.



  28. 28

    I was in the Hofffbrau haus,Lowenbrau Haus and all the other Hauses in MUNCHEN!! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!



  29. 29

    were you experienced the first time you had a cock shoved in your ass fat body? who gives a fuck, it's new york, she's a democrat and a kennedy so big deal.

  30. buck says – reply to this


    30

    i think i will vote for the Nanny instead



  31. 31

    YES LOVE HER



  32. 32

    SHE'LL MAKE AN EXCEPTIONAL SENATOR….SHE'S ALWAYS BEEN THE TRUELY SENSEABLE MEMBER OF THE KENNEDY CLAN….PERHAPS THE FIRST WOMEN PRESIDENT WILL BE A SENATOR FROM NEW YORK AFTER ALL…YOU GO CAROLINE !!!!!!!!!



  33. 33

    I love this! Go Caroline!!!



  34. 34

    Yes, go for it!
    HI Sheba, Mama, Alice!



  35. 35

    Go for it Caroline!

    Re: Sweetpiece says Deck the Halls! – Hey! So, how are things in my garden?



  37. 37

    Re: buck – Hey Buck. I'm beginning to like you. But I have to do this……Go Obama, Go democrats, Go Obama, Go democrats, Go Obama, Go democrats, Go Obama, Go democrats, Go Obama, Go democrats, Go Obama, Go democrats, Go OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!Hell yeah, Obama FOR the NEXT 8 YEARS!!!!!Woooo-hoooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  38. 38

    Why is she qualified?



  39. 39

    HAHAH OOOPS! didnt even think of the other brother tedd!!!! i still dont like the word "hate" its such a strong word that shouldnt be thrown around loosely but i have heard tedd is not the best character! thanks for that!



  40. 40

    she's as qualified as obama was



  41. 41

    Demorat hypocrite shits, Gov. Palin busted ass to get where she is and Caroline popped out of Jackie. Now she spends her dead brothers inheritance and wants to use this office to run for president. Stay home, take care of your ugly kids and find a new skin moisturizer.



  42. 42

    Experience doesn't matter. Obama had no experience and he's President Elect so it's a non-issue. She'll do whatever the Democratic party machine wants her to do and that's all they need to know.



  43. 43

    No….but she's really good at fundraising



  44. 44

    SHE WON'T BE "RUNNING" SHE WOULD BE AN APPOINTEE



  45. 45

    Well……………………..What experience did Hillary have? Did Hillary's being the former 1st lady qualify as experience ? NO! Hillary's not experienced to Secretary of State.
    Caroline is not experienced. But New York likes celebrity senators. I've heard that her marriage is in trouble ???????????

    Re: ChihuahuaBama – You said ""She's got politics in her blood. Growing up around it she's probably absorbed more of it by osmosis than some people who have studied it. She may have shunned publicity but that doesn't mean she wasn't behind the scenes learning.""
    ________________________________________________________________-

    Ok then, next time you need surgery, here is an idea. go to the Child of a doctor.. I'm sure they absorbed all that medical knowledge growing up in a family with a doctor. I on the other hand would rather go to a doctor who graduated from medical school.



  47. 47

    Re: ugly step sister – You said "Experience doesn't matter. Obama had no experience and he's President Elect so it's a non-issue. "
    ______________________________________________________________

    I'm extreamly curious how being an elected official for years in the state and then running a federal campaign and getting elected as a U.S. Seator, so that combined he has over 10 years as an elected official counts as "No experience" Look, if you don't like a politician fine, but give a real reason, don't just make stuff up.



  48. 48

    Yeyyy! Go Kennedy's! And look at it this way, Obama doesn't have the experience either or Terminator… What can possibly go Bush, I mean wrong? :)

    But I'd really like to see her win :)



  49. 49

    Re: jencatch32 – How dare you say Senator Edward Kennedy is a moron, have you lost your marbles ? What an asshole you are, go back to jail.



  50. 50

    No. I am opposed to these political family dynastic arrangements. They are common in the Middle East and other authoritarian regions, but they have no place in a democratic meritocracy.



  51. 51

    She is smart and did a great job, very quietly, for the education system in New York City and I am sure she has done plenty of work for JFKJr's Robin Hood Charity.

    Mrs. Schlossberg could get anyone on the phone on the first ring and have her pick of any of the really, really qualified people in this country. She has no reason to be self-serving and doesn't need the money….or the pension…or the book deal…or any of what so many of the political folks seems tothink is their entitlement.

    Go for it!



  52. 52

    There are many more deserving and experienced people, like Carolyn Maloney, who have distinguished records of public service than Caroline. Carolyn has been working for the past 20 years to represent the interests of New Yorkers in DC! Just because she's a Kennedy doesn't mean she deserves this seat.

  53. huc says – reply to this


    53

    She needs no experience, she is a Kennedy. Kennedy's can kill, rape, drink, do drugs, sleep with anybody they want. They do not have to bother with a silly thing like experience.



  54. 54

    GET READY FOR ANOTHER DEAD KENNEDY!



  55. 55

    Yes



  56. 56

    NOW you are worried about experience? You are worried about an experienced Senator but not an experienced President? You really need to get your priorities in check.



  57. 57

    She looks just like Tea Leoni with a bad hair do in this picture!



  58. 58

    I don't think it matters how much experience she has. She's a Kennedy. Besides most people don't pay enough attention to the decisions of individual senators for her experience (or lack thereof) to matter if/once she's appointed.

    Why are we excited about this?



  60. 60

    WHAT A JOKE!
    .
    FIRST OF ALL… LETS BE CLEAR… FORGET LACK OF EXPERIENCE…
    .
    SHE IS LAZY!!! LAZY LAZY LAZY!!!
    .
    SHE HAS CHOSEN TO DO N-O-T-H-I-N-G IN HER LIFE EXCEPT TEA PARTIES AND WEAR BALL GOWNS TO KENNEDY CENTER CELEBRATIONS! AND WRITE BOOKS ABOUT CHRISTMAS PARTIES HER MOTHER THREW!
    .
    SHE WANTS TO BE "HANDED" A SENATE SEAT BECAUSE SHE IS TOO LAZY TO ACTUALLY WORK AND CAMPAIGN FOR IT!
    .
    SHE HAS NEVER PUT IN A HARD DAY'S WORK IN HER LIFE BUT HAS ALWAYS EXPECTED TO BE REVERED!
    .
    AT LEAST MARIA SHRIVER (WHO I DON'T CARE FOR THAT MUCH EITHER) WORKED HARD AS A JOURNALIST AND HAD AN ACTUAL CAREER!
    .
    AND RFK'S KIDS HAVE BEEN KNOWN FOR THEIR LIFE LONG ACCOMPLISHMENTS AND ACTIVISM.
    .
    SHE WAS EVEN TOO LAZY TO BE A HUMANITARIAN AND/OR STAND UP FOR CIVIL RIGHTS UNTIL AT THE LAST MINUTE, SHE JUMPS ON THE OBAMA BANDWAGON TO LOOK LIKE SHE HAS TRIED TO HAVE SOME PURPOSE ALL THESE YEARS!
    .
    I GUARANTEE YOU THAT IF SHE IS NOT APPOINTED, SHE WON'T BOTHER TO RUN WHEN THE SEAT COMES UP. SHE JUST WANTS (I MEAN SHE EXPECTS) SOMEONE TO HAND HER SOMETHING!!



  61. 61

    not experienced.



  62. 62

    Re: Cleopatra
    .
    YES… MAYBE THE OTHER POSTER SHOULD NOT HAVE REFERRED TO TED KENNEDY AS A MORON.
    .
    THEY SHOULD HAVE REFERRED TO HIM AS A MURDERER! THAT WOULD BE MUCH MORE ACCURATE!



  63. 63

    TO TALK DIRECTLY TO PZ - YOU ASK IF SHE IS EXPERIENCED ENOUGH FOR THIS POSITION?
    .
    OMG - YOU JUST SPENT 6 MONTHS LICKING THE FEET OF A COMPLETELY UNQUALIFIED MAN RUNNING FOR **PRESIDENT**!!
    .
    NOW YOU ALL OF SUDDEN YOU THINK SOMEONE NEEDS TO BE EXPERIENCED TO BE IN POLITICS?!?!?!
    .
    FOR THOSE OF YOU REFERENCING HOW GREAT OBAMA AND ARNOLD ARE AND THEY HAVE NO EXPERIENCE…
    .
    CALIFORNIA IS IN SHAMBLES!! BUDGETARY SHAMBLES AND IS A LAUGHING STOCK AROUND THE COUNTRY AND AROUND THE GLOBE!! WAY WORSE THAN IT WAS WHEN ARNOLD DECIDED TO SLIDE IN DURING A SPECIAL ELECTION (AT LEAST HE CAMPAIGNED BUT DEFINITELY TOOK THE EASY ROUTE TO THE GOVERNOR'S CHAIR)!!
    .
    WE HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH OF A SILLY JOKE OBAMA IS GOING TO BECOME WITH HIS LACK OF EXPERIENCE!
    .
    BUT HEY… LETS JUST KEEP ELECTING UNQUALIFIED PEOPLE! THAT'S A GREAT IDEA!!!
    .
    THEN WE CAN ALL SAY STUPID THINGS LIKE… I HOPE OBAMA PICKS HILLARY FOR SECRETARY OF STATE BECAUSE HE HAS NO EXPERIENCE AND NEEDS HER!
    .
    OR ANOTHER STUPID STATEMENT I HEARD FROM AN OBAMA SUPPORTER…
    .
    I HOPE OBAMA PICKS MITT ROMNEY AS ECONOMY CZAR BECAUSE OBAMA HAS NO EXPIERNCE AND MITT ROMNEY WOULD BE GREAT AT THAT!
    .
    PEOPLE PEOPLE PEOPLE … EXPERIENCE MATTERS!! SO DOES SCRUTINY, AS WE WILL SOON SEE WITH THIS ILLINOIS GOVERNOR CRAP!



  64. 64

    Re: jessejames82 – I imagine Alice is referring to Ted Kennedy, not RFK.



  65. 65

    Another Kennedy whore we have to worry about. First her cocksmen Father, then her whore mother who married that Greek. Then, forget about the rest, the Kennedys are scum.



  66. 66

    Seems like there is not one person born in New York that knows anything about being a Senator. The Kennedys and Clinton sure know how to screw the people of new york.



  67. 67

    She's really beautiful, but could use some makeup



  68. 68

    she grew up in a family were generations had held major positions in the government. lets hope she's not prone to the kennedy curse.



  69. 69

    Aww, she has her daddy's smile! Wish her luck in winning the Senate seat.



  70. 70

    We don't need another Kennedy funeral.



  71. 71

    Hell ya she should be in office! She is the daughter of JFK after all! She's got my vote. Wait, I live in Minnesota. So maybe not. But whatever, bring back some of the Camelot mystique to Washington. By all accounts she is very smart, and a true liberal.



  72. 72

    and the bribery and nepotism continue!



  73. 73

    Legacy legacy legacy need more people from powerful families in key positions plz



  74. 74

    Absolutely. Caroline is very wise and will be an outstanding Senator.



  75. 75

    hell ya! she spent enough time round the dinner table at the Kennedy functions she must have learned alot over the years and knows all the goto people if she needs anything- give the girl a chance we let that crazy bitch palin get to possible VP why not let a real lady woith true blood and brains show her colors! She has many angels watching over her to give her advice and show her the way!



  76. 76

    Re: Spindoc – #46 Nice segue way Pigez, however the day that politicians have to undergo the level of training and dedication that must be demonstrated by any surgeon is the day that Congress have attendees with IQ's higher than room temperature . . . or that Perez's prostitute snowflakes fall in hell - let me know when that happens, you'll be there.



  77. 77

    Experience? Like you mean Eliot Spitzer? Blogdoyovitch? Ted "felon" Stevens? Could you just fill the entire page with the names of about the biggest douchebags ever. At least she won't be a whore-monger or takin money on the side cuz she has enough.



  78. 78

    Re: johnde – I AGREE!!!!!!! TWO BUSHIES WAS AT LEAST ONE TOO MANY.



  79. 79

    i think she is.
    if there's anyone that knows how washington works it probably her.
    plus i'm sure her uncle either has/will be showing her the ropes.
    good for her!

  80. MP says – reply to this


    80

    I like Caroline Kennedy but aside from her family name what experience does she have to run a state?



  81. 81

    Probably not, but being a US senator might be one of those jobs that nothing really prepares you for. She probably couldn't do much worse than some of those morons that have served in the US Congress. She's GOT to be better than Duke Cunningham.



  82. 82

    Re: jessejames82 – I meant Teddy. Jeeze.



  83. 83

    Does it matter if she is qualified or not? Seems a majority of the people don't care if they have a president that may or may not be qualified so why worry about a pesky senator. You know she'll get the seat.. its almost as if its already a done deal…. what kind of idiot Gov would not appoint a Kennedy, specially one with her history.



  84. 84

    Hell no,the Kennedy's are as corrupt as the rest. Discusted how the media controls the ignorant masses,New World Order is looking pretty good right now.



  85. 85

    What experience does this one have except for the last name connection? Besides, don't they all have a curse on them? if I had their last name, I would actually stay away from the spotlight so that I have a less chance of the curse happening!



  86. 86

    Actually, I heard there are a few in the running, Andrew Cuomo and my favorite choice Leecia Eve. Leecia was Senator Clinton's Lead Council. If you don't know her Google her and get to know her. Although I like Caroline, I think that Leecia Eve is a better and more expirienced choice. And on a side note, it would be nice to have someone from upstate NY in the seat FINALLY!



  87. 87

    Since when did Democrats care about experience?



  88. 88

    YES! YES! YES! I LOVE her!



  89. 89

    All the Kennedy's are and were WAY overrated!



  90. 90

    God this Country is fucked. We elect a President with absolutely no experience, Blagojevich tries to sell Obama's Senate seat, and now Caroline Kennedy, who by the way has made a point of staying out of the political arena for years, decides she wants Hilary's soon to be vacant Senate seat. I feel like were in a science fiction movie "The Democratic Invaders". I'm just biding my time until 2012 when hopefully everyone will wake up from this nightmare.



  91. 91

    One more political hack in the Senate doesn't make much difference these days. See Truth According To T o m
