Senator Caroline Kennedy…Ugh No Thank You…

Will somebody please tell me what qualifies Caroline Kennedy to be the Senator of New York? Because I have yet to hear one argument that would lead me to conclude she deserves the seat over the many many qualified politicians and political leaders in New York. When it comes to political appointments, Harriet Myers was more qualified to be a Supreme Court Justice than Mrs. Kennedy is qualified to be a Senator.

But there’s a compromise that’s lost in all of this back and forth. If Gov Patterson appointed one of the many qualified Congresspersons to the open Senate seat, say Carolyn Maloney, that would open up a congressional seat for Caroline Kennedy. Seems obvious to me.
