Senator Caroline Kennedy?

The political rumor mill is in over-drive with this little nugget about Caroline Kennedy lobbying Governor Patterson for Hillary's Senate seat.

My guess is that Patterson will take this seriously; after all, he'll be up for re-election in 2010, and the top of the ticket will be a special election for Hillary's seat.  As one Hillary insider told me, the Governor will want someone with strong name recognition, high favorable ratings, and who can raise money on their own.  Kennedy certainly fits that bill, and she'll also help Patterson with suburban women.

It would be a bold choice, and certainly jazz up the base.  Caroline Kennedy is about the only Democrat who has even more star power than Hillary herself ... but without the baggage. 

Of course, the irony is that Kennedy turned her back on Hillary in the primary to endorse Obama, and now she'd be taking her seat.  Wonder how Hillary would feel about that.

Caroline Kennedy's resume (from wikipedia):
B.A. from Harvard University
J.D. from Columbia Law School
Wrote two books with Ellen Alderman:
* In Our Defense: The Bill of Rights In Action (1990)
* The Right to Privacy (1995)
Edited several books, wrote one on the Kennedy family.
Currently President of the Kennedy Library Foundation, a director of both the Commission on Presidential Debates and the

NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, and Honorary Chairman of the American Ballet Theatre. She is also an adviser to

the Harvard Institute of Politics, a living memorial to her father.

The Senate would not only be getting another Kennedy and all the stuff that goes along with that but also Jackie's

daughter, A girl raised at arms length fromt he rest of the clan. She would probably be the first Kennedy to serve in the

Senate or House who has not been to rehab since Bobby back in 1968. She would be great, if s

She seems so poised on the campaign stump for Obama. I thought to myself at that time she should follow in her family's footsteps.

Is it just me or do you already kind of feel a noticeable difference in the tone our country is going to take...like the train is back on the rails or something.

I know we are dealing with some heavy domestic and foreign affairs issues, but I get the sense that everything will be all right.

It would be a smart choice. She'd probably win easily in 2010, and Patterson wouldn't have to worry about raising $$$ for her. Plus, she'd have Obama's ear ...
