I Know I Should Like Her....

But I feel weird about her candidacy for the next senator from New York. Is this part of the "change we can believe in" or more of the "meet the new boss, same as the old boss"?

It takes a certain level of entitlement to seek this position without serving as a public servant/ or visible public advocate beforehand. At the same time, her media draw may be something New York politicos think will serve the state.

Isn't there anyone else?

I can see how her name legacy can open the door, I just don't know if she has what it takes to keep the door open successfully. Is she going to be able to represent her "people" better than someone with some actual experience? We shall see.

I totally understand how you feel, Evi. And I think we'll all quickly see what big shoes Hillary left to fill, no matter who gets the seat. On the other hand, in Caroline's defense, anyone who pisses off Sarah Palin is okay by me.

Wasn't that just the silliest thing that Sarah Palin said about Caroline Kennedy being part of the upper class? I can't remember the last time that I had heard type of phrase used. Upper income maybe but class . . . It's been awhile.
