I Like The Caroline Kennedy Name

She is a Kennedy, but she is no spoilt child. She endorsed Barack at a point in the primary when I was not all that sure we will win. We won Iowa. Hillary won New Hampshire. It looked like it could go either way. She is smart. She has been in public service. She is not going to feel a downstate person to the upstate people. White woman for white woman. I don't like the idea of a male, any male, filling up Hillary's seat. There are few women in the US Senate as is. We need more not less women up there. I am not at all worried about the 2010 and 2012 elections. She will win both easy. She will raise money easy. She will travel across the state easy. Caroline, you got Barack, we got you. I like the Kennedy connection. I was not around when JFK was around. But I am around when Barack is around. Barack is JFK for the 21st century. Malia and Sasha might like a family friend in town who also was in the White House when really young.

JFK was in a boat with Caroline and a FDR son. The sharks are hungry, throw your socks to the sharks, JFK said to the FDR son. The FDR son complied and took his socks off and threw them into the water. Young Caroline was impressed.

She can more than do the job. She can more than win elections. And she brings along a load of name and charisma and glamor. She is a really famous person who is really grounded.

I think I am for Caroline Kennedy for Senator from New York.
