Office of the Senator-Appointee?

There's a reason she remains elusive.

Caroline Kennedy has no qualifications other than being a Kennedy. She favors same-sex marriage and opposes vouchers. As a Democrat, it's just about a given that she supports abortion on demand. A little "choice for me but not for thee". It's interesting that the NYT would even reference Uncle Teddy as architect of No Child Left Behind, considering how much the Leftists and the press ridicule it (oh...that's right. It's the NCLB that was authored by the Evil, Stupid Bush that they hate).

Ms. Kennedy would not say, for example, whether she supported proposals to abolish tenure for teachers and offer them merit pay instead.

Of course not. She has to play both sides here, so be sure to be elusive.

One of the main assets she could bring to the Senate, Ms. Kennedy suggested, was her celebrity itself. It would be useful, she said, in bringing attention to New York’s needs and fighting for a bigger share of federal stimulus money.

Smell the pork here? She learned well at her uncles feet (insert car joke here). She claims to be "for working families". Something we hear all too often. I'd argue everyone other than Senators and Kennedy's are "working families". Bill Gates works. Donald Trump works. And I'd argue they work harder than a guy making minimum at Wal-Mart.

Read the article. It's enlightening.
