Well damn, don't you think the people that represent us in the senate should at least be from NY. If they are from Chicken Crotch, South Dakota what the hell would they care about representing NYers?

Hello, she is a KENNEDY. She draws upon resources and connections which still do make her an asset. I'll bet that she has a longer documented residency in NYS than Hill did and certainly more than Uncle Bobby.

She lives in Manhattan. The last time I looked, that was part of NY.

Klein, who recruited Caroline Kennedy to form the New York City Education Department’s Office of Strategic Initiatives, credited her with creating a philanthropic framework that has raised more than $400 million, including $51 million from the foundation headed by Microsoft Corp. founder Bill Gates.

“I think she’d be terrific,” Klein said last week. “She’d add great luster to the position and have a lot of talented people to draw on.”

She also attracted praise, if not endorsements, from Obama and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg in the past two weeks.

Obama, who won her support last January and named her to a three-person team that helped select U.S. Senator Joseph Biden as his running mate, described Kennedy on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Dec. 7 as a “one of my dearest friends” and “a wonderful American, a wonderful person.”

‘Hard-Working, Honest’

A week ago, Bloomberg called her a “hard-working, honest” woman who “understands the issues” and “can do anything.” The mayor is founder and majority owner of Bloomberg News parent Bloomberg LP.

A Dec. 10 Marist College poll reported that Caroline Kennedy and New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, who is divorced from Kerry Kennedy, each received 25 percent support as the favorite for the Senate among the state’s registered voters. Kennedy got 31 percent among Democrats to Cuomo’s 21 percent. The poll had a 4.5 percentage point margin of error.

Caroline Kennedy lives in Manhattan with her husband, museum designer Edwin Schlossberg, and their three children, ages 20, 18 and 15.

Was Hillary ever a resident of NY?

You don't have to be a resident of NY to come in and take over. You just have to be a member of a powerful dynasty. It's very simple.

I wonder if Osama Bin Laden will run for Senator from NY someday... He's got great family connections.

She certainly has lineage and name recognition. Other than her efforts on behalf of public education does she have any appreciable legaslative/political experiance? I don't think the woman has ever run for any office ever. Who knows, maybe her lack of experiance would be a positive.

Sure she does. Her father was President and her mother married a rich Greek guy. What more can you ask for?

Exactly it doesn't matter when it comes right down to it. Caroline has connections that mere mortals do not have and that is the deal. She has been hibernating apparantly and now wants to do something and BAM the doors open and in she walks to the Senate.
Does she really have what it takes? Don't ask me I do not know although it looks like we might find out.

His wife is Carrie Kennedy and she is endorsing her cousin, Caroline. I was watching this on CBS this morning and they were joking that we needed flow charts to keep up with all the connections...lol.

Right. You didn't know and were too lazy to find out. Now you want to blame your ignorance and laziness on others.
