With Hillary Clinton leaving her Senate Seat to take up the position of Secretary of State, names have been floated around already of who will be her replacement. The media has been pushing hard for Caroline Kennedy
as that choice. It is quite obvious that they are not just reporting on her potentiality, but are actively promoting her.
I feel that most people hearing of this though already hate Caroline Kennedy. While I personally don't know a whole lot about her, I do know enough to make me have a bad taste in my mouth. She recently stumped for Barack Obama and in doing so I think she got a big head and got some kind of rush from so many people cheering for her. So much of a big head that she is going to run for the Senate now where previously she has stayed out of politics.
It's just amazing to me that people would already be taking her seriously just because of her name. What is it with people who would support someone like Caroline Kennedy? She has no public experience. She comes out of the woodwork and doesn't take the steps that most "normal people" would have to take - like getting some actual experience at the local and state levels before grabbing for one of only 100 position in this country. It smacks of total elitism and I think that the majority of the people - who are not far-left wing and are of the belief that she's a Teddy Kennedy clone - already hate this woman.
She has brought it on herself though by taking this step in which she thinks that having the support of her Uncle Teddy, her name, good looks and the fact that she is the daughter of a president gives her the right to lord over others and pretend she knows what is right for the state of New York. I personally am fed up with this inexperienced type of candidate. As if this country needs even more people who don't know what that hell they are doing up on Capitol Hill.
The pushing of Caroline for the Senate, based on everything except the issues, is what is troublesome to most people. I'd like to ask New Yorkers out there if they even know one position that Caroline Kennedy stands for? Has the media told you that, or have all they told you is how she is the daughter of John F. Kennedy, how her uncle is a Senator and how there is some sort of dynastic destiny that she be elected to the Senate? No, they haven't told you any of her stances and the reasons are that she is going to play the same cards that Barack Obama did, no positions on anything just a bunch of hype, hoopla, glitz and glamor and that my friends is something this country has had enough of.
For just a minute sit back and think of what George Washington or Thomas Jefferson would have to say about Caroline Kennedy. Ignore the "female factor" that they may have objected to as the norm of that day and think about whether they would think Caroline Kennedy would be a good choice for Senator of one of the most populous states in the nation. I think they would be sorely disappointed.
Besides, do we really need to have a reason for a Neil Diamond song to be played over and over again?
