Caroline was qualified because she was a woman and a mother.
Well, if that's all it takes, why did we protest Sarah Palin being the VP candidate?
I can't imagine why the Kennedy cousin made such a shallow statement, unless she may harbor some resentment towards Caroline. Jackie Kennedy didn't particularly like the way Bobby's kids were being raised, and thus kept her two away from them as much as possible.
We do know that Caroline is smart....a law degree from Columbia and another degree from Harvard. She is an attorney, editor, writer and member of the New York and Washington, D.C. bar associations.
She's written several books (or co-authored):
Kennedy and Ellen Alderman have written two books together on civil liberties:
In Our Defense: The Bill of Rights In Action (1990) and
The Right to Privacy (1995)
On her own, she has edited these New York Times best-selling volumes:
A Patriot’s Handbook
The Best-Loved Poems of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
A Family of Poems: My Favorite Poetry for Children
Profiles in Courage for Our Time
She is also the author of A Family Christmas a collection of poems, prose and personal notes from her family history.
There may be people (males and females) sitting in the Senate now who are less qualilfied to be there than is Caroline Kennedy. But let's let the governor do his job and see what happens.
