Caroline Kennedy Drops Out Of The Race!

| Filed under: Politik

carolinewenn.jpg

JFK's daughter, Caroline Kennedy, has taken her name out of consideration to replace newly appointed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as Senator of New York.

Kennedy informed New York Governor David Paterson on Wednesday, and she is expected to make an official announcement shortly.

No cause has been given yet for her removal, but The New York Times claims that Caroline was concerned about her uncle Ted Kennedy's health and decided not to take on the job of Senator after he became ill again this week.

Uhmm, that may be true and all, but it's not likely the real reason!

According to polling data, Caroline was not a favorite of the people of New York and she gave many shiteous TV interviews. Plus, it had been revealed that she had a less than sterling voting record and didn't even donate that regularly to her party, the Democrats.

Hillary's successor is chosen by the Governor of New York. And, the main theory floating around is that Gov. Patterson informed Kennedy that she wasn't going to get the appointment and offered her the opportunity to remove herself from the race as a way of bowing out gracefully.

The current frontrunner for the Senatorship is NY Attorney General Andrew Cuomo.

May the best man or woman get the job!

  2. 2

    i would too…you know as they say..the Kennedy curse will live on



  3. 3

    I think the real reason is because people didn't want her!



  4. 4

    Shock! okay, not reallly. now a real politician can actually get the post.



  5. 5

    It took me a while to consider that the ONLY reason Hillary Clinton was on
    that ceremonial stage was because of who she was married to years ago,
    not for anything she has done. Just a wife.
    So with the Kennedys, just a name, but good boozers if you want a party!



  6. 6

    She fukin knew they wasn't going to pick her. You can't talk like a 4 year old, ya know, ya know, ya know, spastic school girl and take Hilary's fukin place.. She sure ain't her dad, uncle or brother…must be her mom..heheheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee



  7. 7

    shit!!!!!

    NOOO! STAY IN THE RACE! CARRY ON THE FAMILYS POILITICAL NAME



  10. 10

    Now it makes sense to me why she stepped down.



  11. 11

    she clearly does not have her mom's style. What the F is she wearing here?



  12. 12

    Sweeeeet Caroline…. la la la… so what she was never going to get it anyway,,,,

    Good, she can go back to her hamptons socialite life now instead of bothering us. Her name should have never been out there for consideration.



  14. 14

    I see how this works. Ted fakes a seizure during one of the biggest events this century. He's rushed to the hospital and is ok. Caroline can now bow out stating it's due to her uncles condition. Thus saving herself the embarassment of being denied the Senate seat because she is not qualified.

    Good thinking you two.



  15. 15

    Now she can come back in 2 years and earn it the old fashion way…campaign and get a majority of the vote.

    Bow out gracefully… by using her ill Uncle as her excuse? Ya, classy (eye roll).



  17. 17

    David Gregory from Meet the Press was just on "The Rachel Maddow" show on MSNBC stating Kennedy did not take her name out of the running. So apparently the story isn't true.



  18. 18

    Caroline Kennedy said it was because of "Uncle Ted's seizure" yesterday that she was dropping out of the race for Senator…she no doubt realized that she was facing some major competition and didn't want to risk being defeated OR she didn't want to disclose her finances to the entire world. She assumed she'd be a "shoe in" and when it became apparent that she wasn't, she decided to back out gracefully.

    She can always try to become a Senator later, when she learns , ya know, how to speak more eloquently, ya know!

    Stay well, Ted Kennedy!



  19. 19

    if her uncle dies,one day,she knows she'll be the next senator on hr uncle,s seat. Like sony bono - his wifey is now senator !!!! simple…. but not fair.



  20. 20

    Noo! I love Caroline Kennedy. She's brilliant.



  21. 21

    good!



  22. 22

    SORRY NO VOTE FROM HERE…………………..BYE. GO BACK WHERE YOU BELONG BIATCH



  23. 23

    my girlfriend Rachel Maddow said there was a misunderstanding and that Kennedy is indeed still up for the job



  24. 24

    Re: ck2010 – She may be brilliant but she sucks at public speaking. She made a fool of herself on TV



  25. 25

    Did she think she had a chance against Hillary? Her only ties to the political arena are her parents. Go away.

  26. MP says – reply to this


    26

    I'm glad she dropped out. If she wants to enter politics, she should start a little lower and get some experience to become more polished. It's not fair that she goes from nothing to Senator in basically the blink of an eye.



  27. 27

    makes me sad. I kinda hoped she'd stay in it.



  28. 28

    As soon as I read the story, I knew it was sour grapes on her part. Her uncle has his own kids and a wife to watch over him. What a lame excuse! She thought that being somebody's daughter was going to be her ticket.



  29. 29

    and the fact that she lied about the little that she supposedly did….it's the kennedy way…it all comes down to mayor Bloomberg thinking he is God and he pouts and carrys on to get his way. He originally was a democrat, ran as a republican and now, as he got the city council to over turn term limits, with city money of course, not his, is becoming an independent. He pushed kennedy on Gov. Paterson and it was this 3 way deal. Kennedy has money for idiot Paterson to try to get elected Gov. in 2010. Kennedy would endorse Bloomy because he is no longer a republican and he would support Kennedy. A sleazebag deal all around with no one caring what New Yorkers thought, only what his holiness MAYOR Bloomberg wanted. Unfortunately for him, Kennedy talked in public, and um, you know, umn, that, you know, took credit for raising money, that, uhm, she had, uhm nothing to do, uhm, with, let, you know, her law … license thing, lapse, and all uhm, wrote, no, uhm co-wrote, uhm, prof read a book on the privilge of voting, and uhm, you, know, did not vote, uhm, half the time. Sorry mr. his holiness mayor.



  30. 30

    Maybe she can take the next two years to put herself out there more,get some public recognition, learn public speaking (although she did great at the DNC), and then come back and run for the office. I really think she's got the knowledge; it's just that she's hidden from the public for so long that people feel uncomfortable with her because they don't know her. Once she gets more well known I think she could have a shot.



  31. 31

    she has to give up the Senate seat to her cousin's pompous windbag of an ex-husband? good luck, new yorkers.



  32. 32

    President Obama will give her a great appointment where she will not have to run for office in 2 years. She not face criticism like she would've in the senate. Life is great if you are a Kennedy.

    33

    Thank God! The last thing our government needs is another Kennedy!



  34. 34

    I don't know a whole lot about her. I have to wonder if she is gay or every what you may call it. Is man is gay and a woman called something else?



  35. 35

    CK's fine education, didn't show during her recent interviews. The repeated expressions such as "ya know", made me cringe. It was a good thing she dropped out, it would only get worse.



  36. 36

    Well, smart people didn't want her.



  37. 37

    AMEN ! PUBLIC SPEAKING IS NOT HER FORTE, SO IS LIKELY NOT CUT OUT FOR THIS JOB !! WILL FRAN DRESHCHER BE REBIDDING ???



  38. 38

    GOOD RIDDANCE! JUST BECAUSE SHE HAD THE NAME KENNEDY AND ALOT OF MONEY TO THROW AROUND, DOESN'T QUALIFY HER FOR SHIT. ITS LIKE HAVING THE NAME "HILTON"-OH SNAP! LOL



  39. 39

    This Rich Bitch and her meanspiited Uncle TED made Hillary's Pez Run a nightmare…"together they stabbed her in ther back".
    She ust got her "Just Desserts" today and yesterday, Uncle Teddy "Hit the Ground" and got his too!
    HaHaha!
    My Congrats & Best Wishes to our new Secretary of State!!
    And Hillary -If you run into " Pinko Pelosi" in Washington-please give her a Kick in the Kunt!!!



  40. 40

    Aww…she was just trying to jump on the "no experence, no problem" hiring plan that Hussein has in place



  41. 41

    Smirks? I just went back through the Obama posts and saw your shout out. Is it you?



  42. 42

    there is something SO off about her, cant put my finger on it, but I also heard this "rumor" is not true, which wouldnt surprise me at all, cause Perez is always off



  43. 43

    Caroline didn't vote in an election for years, but she felt she deserve to be a Senator because of her name….At least the Bushes and Clintonswork hard for the power.

    This woman has no personality, caristma, good intentions or nothing interesting to offer the Senate…Poor Caroline she even thought her name will get her there…Her name probably was the reason she was not elected…Who wants another filthy Kennedy in power? Nobody.



  44. 44

    don't worry about her…she will survive



  45. 45

    She was never qualified to begin with!

    A KISS FROM THE HAND MAY BE, QUITE CONTINENTAL

    Goody! The Kennedy's act like their shit don't stink and I'm sick of hearing about them.

  53. tori says – reply to this


    53

    Yeah right, she dropped out because of what happened to Uncle Teddy on inauguration day? Like she didn't know before that that he had a terminal disease and limited time left? Pretty sad to use her uncle's illness to save face, you know? I mean, you know, she should have just admitted that, you know, she was unqualified.



  54. 54

    While I think Caroline is a very smart woman, I did not feel she was either 1) "entitled" to the job, nor 2) had enough experience.
    -
    However, I'm less than thrilled with her nebulous "personal reasons" for withdrawaling.
    -
    I like her, but if she wants to have credibility in the Big Leagues, she needs to be more forthcoming.



  55. 55

    Loved her parents, but what besides her lineage makes her qualified to be a senator? Her whole life has been very PRIVATE. You can't be a private, pretentious, introverted type if you want to be a senator. It all just seemed very ill-fitting from the beginning. She needs to be more friendly and gregarious if she wants to run for public office. And she makes Sarah Palin look like an absolute genius.



  56. 56

    I am tired of hearing how this family is cursed. How are they cursed? Yes, a nut assinated JFK. All Presidents have people that want to kill them and some plans are not caught in time. RFK ran knowing the same think might happen to him and it did unfortunatelyThis is not a curse, but the work of crazy people. JFK's older brother, Joseph, who was the original choice to run for president, was a pilot during WWII and died in a crash. His sister Katherine, died in 1948 in a plane crash with her lover. His sister Rosemarie was slow and to keep control of her, the father had a frontal lobotomy done on her, rendering her a vegetable. Edward Kennedy was in a plane crash in the 60's where he had a broken back and in 1969 drove off a bridge on Martha's Vineyard swimming to shore, leaving his 'secretary' in the back seat to die and did not report the accident until the next morning. No charges. The patriarch made his money bootlegging during prohibition and had affairs with most of Hollywood. Marilyn Monroe was shared with both JFK and RFK.

    This great news. One less drunken, murder, etc. to deal with.

    . RFK's son, David, chronic drug problems that ended with his death in 1984, RFK's son Michael got in trouble for sexual relations with his underage babysitter. later that year, 1997, was playing the usual Kennedy skiing football game they do on ski slopes and are always told to stop playing by the ski patrol and while trying to catch the football went facefirst into a tree and died on the mountain. JFK's son, JFK jr. besides taking 3x to pass the bar, died while trying to land his plane on Martha's Vineyard for his cousin's wedding.on a night where there was very HEAVY FOG WHERE MANY EXPERIENCED PILOTS WOULD NOT FLY THAT NIGHT. he was not instrument rated, but felt he could do it, afterall, he was a kennedy. Rep. Patrick Kennedy, racing around DC and blaming it on some presc. med and he went to rehab, did not resign. Shriver brought up on rape and not guilty AND I am not including the drug, rape charged that the family had and God knows, how many they did not get because of their name.
    AND Caroline has never used her law license and has let it lapsed. has never raised anywhere near what she claims she says she raised. takes credit for what others did and claims that Bill Gates personally wanted her up on the stage to take the $50 million grant the his charity was giving to NYC schools. ???????????? Family Cursed? some sad things, but most brought upon themselves



  59. 59

    I'm glad to see she took my advice.

    Re: justtfax
    Those examples are what the wacko left says "character" is. They don't want those "loony religious" zealots in politics.



  61. 61

    Re: topper – Topper - perhaps you've forgotten that this country was founded on the premise of "religious freedom." That is why the Pilgrams came here, remember?
    -
    There is no place for religion in politics. Our forefathers attempted to make sure that would be the basis, however the republican party of the past 8 years has tried to jam it down our throats.
    -
    Worship in whatever manner you choose - but keep it out of politics.
    -
    Perhaps check out the First Amendment on the Constitution?
    -
    The phrase separation of church and state was written by Thomas Jefferson in 1802 to the Danbury Baptists, in which he referred to the First Amendment to the United States Constitution as creating a "wall of separation" between church and state.



  62. 62

    Re: LULU~*

    You atheists insist that religious freedom means the absence of God. That is not what the founding fathers wanted. God & Creator were mentioned in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. If you don’t believe in God then move on.

    Living by moral values is not religion. They are what laws are founded upon.

    Yes. No specific/organized religion should be allowed in government. That includes Atheism.

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    As it says: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof

    Separation of church and state referred to the Church as being the head of government or included in the governing process. The King was the head of the Church of England. God and the belief in God is not the same as heading the government.



  63. 63

    Re: topper
    Correction: God & Creator were mentioned in the Declaration of Independence but not the Constitution because it wasn't relevant to mention.

    Can I still bang her?



  66. 66

    Re: topper – Excuse me, but the notion of a separation of church and state was exactly the point. And I still believe that is the right path.

    Again, you are free to worship in whatever manner you choose. You are not free to tell me what to do.
    -
    For what reason, do you not want to have a private, personal relationship with God? Why do you feel you have the right to demand others believe in what you do?
    -
    Having high morals, and a caring, truthful character does not require a belief in whatever it is you are espousing. It can certainly go hand-in-hand with religion — but religion in not a requirement for being a good person.



  67. 67

    Is it wrong for a woman like her to have sugar daddy?? you know it is an absolutely extramarital relationship, but more and more services c ome out on Internet focusing on this kind of relationship..like ^^^^^^^^^celebmingle .com^^^^^^^^^^.. what will the world be??



  68. 68

    Re: LULU~*
    Forget making a point. Just try to comprehend what I’m saying. Worshipping is not what separation of Church and State is about. It is about CONTROL. The Church cannot enter government much less head it. The State cannot get into the Church’s business to any degree. The 1st Amendment covers freedom of religion. Nowhere does it say the separation of Church & State. That came from the Supreme Court.

    There’s no reason that people should have to hide in order to have a religion. Churches can have symbols for the public to see. Anyone can say a prayer in public. I can put a crucifix or menorah in my front yard. The Atheists don’t want to allow that. They are chipping away at rights so religions will have to go in the closet like they did in the Soviet Union.

    The Ten Commandments are found all through British common law and the laws all over the world. They are common values everywhere. Adultery is now common and acceptable. Stealing and lying are acceptable if you are a politician or very wealthy. Working on the Sabbath day is now expected and on and on. That is the result of the radical left’s assault on religion. Atheists demand that the world submit to their belief rather than everyone having a choice. What would be the measure of character or morals without religion?
