It's official - Caroline Kennedy is seeking Hillary Clinton's Senate seat when it becomes available. Of course, a decision has not yet been made, but if Caroline Kennedy is interested in this seat, I'd be willing to bet she will get it.
It will be ironic if she fills the seat that her uncle, Robert F. Kennedy, once held.
According to the Times,
"The decision came after a series of deeply personal and political conversations, in which Ms. Kennedy, whom friends describe as unflashy but determined, wrestled with whether to give up what has been a lifetime of avoiding the spotlight.
Ms. Kennedy will ask Gov. David A. Paterson of New York to consider her for the appointment, according to the person told of her decision."
If she becomes a Senator, I wonder if it will be she, and not Hillary, who becomes the first woman president. It could happen.
What a long strange trip it's been.
