Caroline Kennedys public campaign may box in Paterson

#1
"(CNN) -- Caroline Kennedy is on a public campaign for Sen. Hillary Clinton's Senate seat, which may make it difficult for New York Gov. David Paterson not to send President John F. Kennedy's only living child to Washington."

Nothing against Ms. Kennedy, but what makes her as qualified than others, who have long been involved in NY politics, for this position? Others, such as Rep. Carolyn Maloney, AG Andrew Cuomo and Kirsten Gillibrand? She suddenly decides she wants the plum job of NY senator, so she should get it?

I am not a fan of Ms. Kennedy's politics which are far too liberal for me. Nevertheless, she is no less qualified and actually might be seen as more qualified that Senator Clinton when she entered office.

Caroline Kennedy is quite lucky to be alive, having survived an assassination attempt by PIRA/Noraid/SF in October of 1975. The bomb exploded prematurely and killed one of London's leading cancer specialists, who was passing by the car.

As someone who raised funds for the people who attempted to murder Ms. Kennedy and her hostess, Lady Antonia Fraser (Daughter of Lord Longford of Co. Westmeath, Ireland), how do you feel about this. Are you disappointed that your colleagues failed to murder her? Are you sorry that a bomb you paid for failed to change history?

Like it or no, Ms. Clinton duly won a senate election - she was not appointed to the position. Whether her name or money influenced the vote is another story. The question here has nothing to do with the past, and all to do with the present - as we know if she serves a term or two as a NY senator, she would be well positioned to run for POTUS. Should Caroline Kennedy, a solicitor with powerful connections, be appointed to a position when others have worked their whole lives in public service, are passed by? Should Gov. Paterson be pressured into appointing her? No doubt, he will be.

Was Caroline Kennedy,and not Sir Hugh Fraser, really an intended target of an IRA bomb?

The killing of a Kennedy by the IRA probably would have changed history as you say, but, arguably, such an own goal would have been for the better.

I would guess Hugh Fraser was the intended target, not Ms. Kennedy. However, apparently, it was known she was would be visiting the Frasers at the time. But what a singularly stupid idea for anyone to target her, for obvious reasons, but who knows?

Anyway, why do you say would have been for the better? Believe it or not, the Kennedys have done good for the people that elect them. That is not the objection to Ms. Kennedy being a US senator. It is the idea that, because she has now decided to go into politics, she should just be able to walk right into it because of her family name, money and connections, when there are others more qualified, who have long worked for the state of NY, who will be bypassed.

Here are her 'qualifications':

1) overseeing her father's presidential library and presenting the annual Profiles in Courage Award.

2) editor of several books

3) leadership roles in the arts

4) solicitor

She might make an excellent senator, but why should she be handed it with her limited background? Why doesn't she run for the state senate or other local positions instead? Would like to know what Americans think of this.

But seeing as you've put the question-

If any member of the Kennedy clan had been killed at the hands of the IRA, not only would it have caused the Kennedys to become disaffected with the IRA but additionally, Noraid would have suffered a blow from which it might never have recovered.

That goes without saying, so for the RA to target her would have been foolish in the extreme.

Now, what do you think of her becoming NY senator?

Apparently, Gov. Paterson won't be rushed into making any decisions regarding the Senate seat. He has said he won't do so until Ms. Clinton is confirmed as Secretary of State.

Also, according to some friends in NY, the governor has a history of being contrary - which might account for his response to the press recently where he said, "How is she a front-runner?" when someone referred to Ms. Kennedy that way.

"Still, he made it clear he is growing tired of the constant speculation about JFK's daughter...

...He said the process is "sounding more like the prelude to a high school prom than the choosing of the United States senator." "

Ms. Kennedy might make a fine senator, as she is known for her progressive views, but why should she be given precedence over other, more experienced people because of her family name?

But they did target her as well as Lady Antonia, daughter of a Labour Peer, Lord Longford, who was a devout RC and worked for rights for Catholics in NI, as well as the son-in-law of the Peer. Lord Longford lived much of the year in the RoI.

As it happened, the bomb killed a cancer specialist who might have saved many more lives if he had lived. The pennies and shillings you collected went towards those bombs. Do you feel guilty about that?

As to Caroline Kennedy, the Governor of New York may appoint the successor to Senator Clinton. Popular elections of Senators have been required for less than 100 years. As she is over 30, has been a citizen for over 9 years and lives in New York, she is legally qualified. There has been a bit of a tradition in the US to appoint the widow of a Senator to complete the term of a Senator who dies and I would expect that Ms Kennedy is as qualified as many of those Senators.

Why did your friends try to kill her Kevin. Wny did they try to kill Lay Antonia. Have you any sense of shame Kevin?
