Privacy is first priority. Unless you're in the running for the open Senate seat here in New York.

Thats right, the famous not so private Kennedy clan is pushing for Caroline to succeed Hillary Clinton as the Jr Senator from New York.

Poor Chuck! It seems, he cant get a break. He's the Senior Senator who gets over shadowed time and again by “rock star” like celebrity representatives.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said he and the rest of the family are urging Caroline to seek the New York governor’s appointment. You are shocked aren't you?

Her kids are all grown up, theres nothing keeping her home and hey, if she wants to follow in here uncle's footsteps, well, maybe my leaning toward Kirsten Gillibrand was a little presumptuous.

Imagine what the election cycle would be like here in New York in two years with a Kennedy on the ballot. You would see just about the same turnout as we did this year. Their extended family would come out en masse for her if she does get the appointment and has to run for election in 2010.

Robert Kennedy said to the AP: “If she runs, you will see more Kennedys than you have ever seen in your life,”

So, are we prepared to offer Caroline the opportunity to keep the Camelot legacy alive for another generation? Are there any other Democrats who would sway Paterson's appointment if they even dared?

Lets also remember, Caroline was one of the first to endorse Obama during the primaries which would enhance the already prominent economic and educational support from Hillary herself, now that she'll be Secretary of State.

What can any of us say about the other contenders? Suozzi, Nadler, Gillibrand and even Cuomo wouldn't have the same appeal. Any thoughts from the Hudson Valley? What are her odds?

So in other words, are you saying that Ted Kennedy's endorsement of Obama carried an ulterior family motive from day one?
The hue and cry of "carpetbagger" would certainly be heard again. Not since Reconstruction has such a cry been heard so often over that seat.
It reminds me of what JFK said after he appointed his brother US Attorney General:"I'm giving my brother some experience before he goes out to practice law." What experience does Caroline Kennedy have in politics? Precisely.
Good choice!! ; - ))

I do feel bad that the media doesnt focus on Schumer as much as he'd like. He does alot for New York and this country, however circumstances keep the Jr seat the center of attention.

We all deserve this people. So long as the public continues to focus on what the media is feeding us on cable news, we have noone to blame but ourselves.

Go out of your way to check on the accomplishments of Chuck schumer and you'll see he's been doing just fine for us.
