Wow! Can you possible imagine what it would be like to have a Kennedy in the Senate? Sounds crazy, right?
A Democrat who would know tells ABC News that New York governor David Paterson has talked to Caroline Kennedy about taking the seat, which was once held by her uncle, Robert F. Kennedy. It’s not exactly shocking that Paterson would reach out to one of the most highly respected public figures in New York, but this is: Sources say Kennedy is considering it, and has not ruled out coming to Washington to replace Hillary Clinton in the Senate.
A few years ago, the famously private Caroline Kennedy would be the last Kennedy expected to serve in Congress…
I think it would be pretty cool to see Caroline Kennedy keep the Kennedy dynasty going, especially with Uncle Ted health not what it used to be.
The longest the Senate has gone without a Kennedy in either the Senate or the White House since 1953 was a barely noticeable two-year span between her father's assassination in 1963 and her uncle Bobby's inauguration to the senate in 1965.
Of course, if Caroline really wants to keep the family tradition going, she'll have to become a lesbian.
