| Filed under: PolitikHillary ClintonCaroline Kennedy

Get ready for the second coming of Camelot!

Two sources close to NY governor David Paterson tell the Associated Press that the gov will appoint former first daughter Caroline Kennedy to Hillary Clinton's soon-to-be-vacated U.S. Senate seat.

However, publicly, Paterson says the search 'continues'.

The gov has also made it clear that the next junior Senator from New York will have to win re-election on his or her own.

The Senate appointee is being viewed as a 'place holder' and will face an election in two years time.

Paterson said he won't make an appointment announcement until Hillary's Secretary of State appointment has been confirmed.

    WTF! She has no qualifications what-so-ever with the exception of her last name. Has she even had a real job…ever?



  2. 2

    wow. so unfair.



  3. 3

    And yes I realize she's a lawyer and understands law and politics. But so does my lawyer and he's a real boob.



  4. 4

    Was there EVER any doubt she would get this!?



  5. 5

    Perfect! Another Democratic cracka honky pretending to help black folks but really is just telling black folks what to do! Bruthas and sistas when will we ever learn!



  6. 6

    PLEASE NO. I live in NY and she has absolutely no qualifications for the job. Please please please please no. It would be ridiculous and an irresponsible choice on Gov. Paterson's part.

    Horrid! Just because of a birth right.



  11. 11

    sometimes you dont need qualifications to be a good leader. YOu just need a bag full of common sense.



  12. 12

    And her qualifications are??? she does not even release her financials or any personal info that everyone in public service is required to do. I guess she has an Obama complex as well…do whatever you want and fuck the rules.



  13. 13

    THE SECOND COMING OF CAMELOT??????? BIGGEST BUNCH OF CRAP, EVER- this jerk has no qualifications other than going to college. I beg everyone out there who is 35 yo and over to google New York State and find Gov. Paterson's office, than find his email address. EVEN if you do not live in NY. Hillary and Robert Kennedy did not live here in NY when they first decided to launch their senate campaign. You do need to be at least 35 yo. Caroline Kennedy has that down. She also has a college education, but there are no rules about that. She has never held a job in her life. All of you should be up on her with that. She does do volunteer work in education, and politics, maybe an hour or two a month-alot of you can top that, she has 3 or 4 kids and a mostly absent husband, any toppers? Oh, and she has that Camelot history-a grandfather that was a bootlegger, and an adulterer, a father who was president who nearly started WW111 and slept with almost anything that passed thru the rose garden and uncles just as bad and they all had wifes that just looked the other way as long as their way of life was not compromised. Yes, that wonderful world of camelot is just around the corner. just can't wait!!!!!HURRY GET YOUR APPLICATION IN TO GOV. PATERSON, NOW!!!!



  14. 14

    Rightly So :)
    Caroline will bring everything you could hope for in a senator and more.
    She is plenty brilliant
    You know Uncle Teddy is so proud
    Yay for Caroline :)



  15. 15

    SOUNDS LIKE MUSICAL CHAIRS FOR THE "ENTITLED." IF YOUR NAME IS BUSH CLINTON OR KENNEDY YOU GET SPECIAL PRIVELEGES! FUCK THIS SHIT.



  16. 16

    BRAVO for Caroline Kennedy, she will be a wonderful Senator. Congratulations and long live the Kennedys.



  17. 17

    WTF? she is NOT Hillary! Viva la Hillary. Go away Kennedy's!



  18. 18

    please dont die Carolyn Kennedy.



  19. 19

    The Kennedy's are not great in my books,guess most people believe what the media tells them…sigh.



  20. 20

    I wish her the best and get America working again! This will take everyone.
    We are in a crisis. Time to roll up the sleeves and see what we can do.

    I would not want her job or any job in Washington! It's hard enough out here.



  21. 21

    To be respectful, her resemblance to her mother look haunting.



  22. 22

    I know that face, she is a closet ROMULIAN!! ECKKK! The nose knows!



  23. 23

    As if….. this doesnt surprise me… People look, this is the way they roll in NY state….. get over it and get on with life….

    Message to Caroline - GIRL, get yourself a really good stylist and dont hire someone like Beyonce's mother… you should be in top brands looking good.. A face lift might be on order also… you are looking alittle droopy around the eyes….. every heard of night firming cream? Get some.



  24. 24

    this isn't right or fair. the level of entitlement is revolting.

    Re: Fat People are Welcome in America
    Like fat people never associate overeating with getting fat, da brothas and da sistas don't relate voting democrat with the suppression of blacks. Maybe in another couple hundred years you people will catch on.

    Re: reillyluck
    Kennedys are born with a death wish. It's in their death is where they get their fame. It certainly isn't from their accomplishments.



  29. 29

    This would be a mistake. Camelot was a joke anyways, just ask your parents (or grandparents).



  30. 30

    This is like, you know, really disgusting, you know. This woman sounds like, you know, inarticulate. She goes "you know" like ummm, all the time. You know. This woman is a dimwit! You know.



  31. 31

    She should run for office if she really wants to be a senator. Obama proved you don't have to come from a rich, white family to win a high political office. Just have a good message, run a good campaign, raise money and put yourself out there - Caroline Kennedy represents old-school politics.

    uhg…politics….*puke



  41. 41

    God for her. She wants to work with Obama and make a difference. What qualification does she need other than her willingness to gather information, read and make intelligent choices?



  42. 42

    bull shiiiiit, she's qualified how?



  43. 43

    you know, um, you know?



  44. 44

    A short trip into the past (Read History Of Kennedy Family) and they were little more than gangsters in the style of todays drug lords?

    OLIGARTHY …. LOOK IT UP AND LEARN. (qUESTION) iS THERE ANY PROFESSION MORE DISPICABLE THAN THAT OF LAWYER?



  46. 46

    It all comes back to who you know!
    If she wasn't a kennedy, she wouldn't even be considered for this position!!!!
    What did JFK ever do for the USA?! Attack Cuba? bay of pigs anyone? Screw Marlyn Monroe? Are those his accomplishments?



  47. 47

    RETURN TO CAMELOT!?!? My God when will that era just roll over and DIE!?



  48. 48

    Caroline can fit more "YA KNOW" 's into one sentence than Obama can fit "Uh" 's into his stuttering non-telepromtered speeches



  49. 49

    QUALIFICATIONS: HER NAME



  50. 50

    Hey atleast she's more qualified than Al Franken



  51. 51

    She's only getting the job because of her last name. She has no political experience, and they're going to give her the senate seat. WTF is wrong with politics these days?



  52. 52

    She might just be a breath of fresh air. She's obviously well educated, very bright, has the right connections, has been around politics all her life, but she hasn't been IN politics and been corrupted. She brings more to the table than the average slick politician which just might be a good thing. Only time will tell. Counting her out just because of her name/heritage is just another form of discrimination. Let her show what she's got. If she can't produce any results then she won't get elected when the term is up in two years.



  53. 53

    "….long live the Kennedys. "

    That's a bit hard…considering they keep dying before they have a chance for a long life.

  54. MP says – reply to this


    54

    Unbelievable. So that's all it takes to get a Senate seat in this country…money and a famous last name, nevermind about experience or qualifications? How is she going to solve New York's massive problems? She can barely utter a sentence without saying "ya know." She will do nothing but toe her party line…I don't see much bipartisanship coming from her. What a disgrace. This is not what our country was founded on. No more Kennedy's, no more Clinton's, no more Bush's!



  55. 55

    "Qualifications" my ass. Look at the mess all those "qualified" senators and congressional reps have gotten us into. Two wars, a depression, more turmoil in the Middle East than ever before.
    She's a Kennedy, she's got an uncle in the Senate, a two cousins in the house, and the staffers do all the work anyway.



  56. 56

    Here ends all grounds for Democratic criticism of Sarah Palin. Sure, CK is smarter, but mayor->governor->VP candidate is much better than daughter of a president -> Senator with no fucking elected office in between.

    To replace a woman who was senator because her husband was president.



  57. 57

    hey this is miss bianca perez my name is kendra bethune i'm black and cherokee i just discoved this site usally i talk to tmz i already heard about caroline kennedy from cnn

  58. 58

    Jesus you are shalow…Second coming of Camelot? How about—Get ready, the democrats are selling the Senators seats!!!…SHAME, SHAME, SHAME–Something the Kennedy's do not have!



  59. 59

    I hope not. I HATE her! Mainly because of her so-called documentary American Hollow, which only helps to invigorate a false stereotype about Appalachia. She's nothing more than a second-rate journalist with the intent to sale a story, rather than portray reality. Once again, I would just like to say, I HATE HER!



  60. 60

    Caroline's experience?
    She is a long time patron of the American Ballet Theatre. She is active in her father’s presidential library. She was a part-time volunteer fund raiser for the NYC schools for less than two years. She’s co-authored two books on civil liberties

    She’s written 5 books. She is her most derivative in her published works. Of 4 New York Times bestsellers; three of them were compilations of other peoples’ work. In another book, Profiles in Courage For Our Time, she swiped only the title from her late father but wrote the copy herself.

    • She hasn’t had a job since before she went to law school in the 1980’s.
    If her name wasn’t Kennedy, would anyone give any consideration at all to someone without any experience to prepare her for the job or to even inform the voters about what she stands for? ANSWER: NO. Is there a single person in the United States who doesn’t wish Caroline Kennedy well and hope that she’s spared from further tragedy?

    Probably not. But affection, sympathy, and nostalgia shouldn’t be the basis for appointing this woefully inexperienced woman to a key Senate seat in these troubles times. Her father’s and uncle’s names are the only thing that makes her a contender.



  61. 61

    Caroline Kennedy apparently thinks that she is entitled to be appointed as the next junior Senator from New York. She shouldn’t be. Think about it. Her qualifications? Her name is Kennedy and she can raise a lot of fat-cat money for herself and for New York democrats who support her.

    Her strategy? Ignore the voters and the press and meet with the political bosses behind closed doors to convince them to pressure Governor David Patterson to appoint her to Hillary Clinton’s seat. Is there a more cynical message in the Age of Obama?

    Her position on issues that will face the next Senator? She won’t tell you. She’s adamantly refused to speak about any issues. In her first foray outside Manhattan, she declined all questions from the press. She wouldn’t even say whether she had ever been to Syracuse before. Does that suggest what the answer would have been? Her handlers finally provided written answers to some of the questions posed by The New York Times. She picked out the questions she wanted to answer and ignored some of the tough issues - like whether she supports increased taxes for rich people. She’s not saying. Now, SHE WON’T DISCLOSE HER PERSONAL FINANCES OR PROVIDE A LIST OF COMPANIES THAT SHE HAS A STAKE IN!

    Oh, the Kennedys can't stop, won't stop.

    How come the Kennedy scum use New York as their toliet bowl. Can't they get elected in MASS, with the drunk murder and KLerry the leech married to the ketchup queen. New Yorkers are such indiots, no wonder their state smell like a Kennedy bunghole.

    No that doesn't even make sense. That's like having your driver's license picture removed to suspend your driving privileges. I think you better rethink that.
    If I want someone to know who I am, I'll turn my avatar back on. But, I think you know who this is.



  65. 65

    If she wants to be senator, she should run. What Obama showed us is that you don't have to be rich and white to successfully win a political office. Just have a strong message, raise money and get out there. It's completly counter to Caroline Kennedy. She's "running" on 'hey, I'm a Kennedy. Vote for me because, you know, I'm a Kennedy." I need to know WHY you want to be a senator. Not, why you shouldn't be denied the job.

    Re: Annie78

    Fuck what you say, the lady is a Kennedy and I for one see nothing more American then a fuckin' Kennedy in office. Bottom line. Competence is in her blood. That Camelot stuff is something that has shaped our country for almost a century. Long live the Kennedy machine…get it? They are going extenct. Let them ride it out

    Re: Diamondhearted
    You are the dumbest thing I have come across on this site!
    To think that a human can inherit abilities like an insect is really retarded thinking. What do you think the Senate is, the House of Lords? Go get your GED and then get educated.

    Re: Diamondhearted

    "…the lady is a Kennedy and I for one see nothing more American then a fuckin' Kennedy in office."

    We have had several "fucking Kennedys" in office. They can't keep it in their pants. Now you want a female Kennedy in there. If sex was a prerequisite for office, Teddy and his brood would have all been Presidents.

    If you decide to run for office, I'll contribute. You are a rare flower here in a field of weeds.

    Is she ashamed of her last name - Schlossberg?????????



  73. 73

    i am so tired of all the shit talk about fucking camelot. just what are the kennedys…bootleggers, drunks, rapist, criminals, rapists, the men will fuck anything in or out of marriage that will open their legs, drug addicted fools living in the past and Carolyn kennedy just looks like a tired old hag.



  74. 74

    Paterson has lost his mind. I've been thinking that he hasn't got a brain in his head, and now he's gone and proved it. I'd love to be a reporter at his press conference and have the opportunity to ask him what her qualifications are, and why he thinks she's the right choice.



  75. 75

    i really hope this twatbag isnt handed the senatorship–so fucking wrong.



  76. 76

    Just what congress needs…another lawyer.



  77. 77

    HA! like there was evena question…
    this woman 51 yrs old .. all of a sudden decided hey I feel like being senator now .. and there you go…
    wow this goes to show the So called democracy have…Cronism at its best



  78. 78

    Caroline Kennedy is not very adept at off the cuff interviews since she has spent a great deal of her life avoiding the press unless it’s under a controlled situation.That doesn’t equate to being unqualified for the senate seat or being unintelligent. Saying that she is too ugly or old looking is as ridiculous as basing Sarah Palins qualifications on her looks. Caroline also comes to the table with clean hands which is more than can be said for others. In her life time she has had to endure more than her share of losses and has come through them all with grace and dignity.
