    i see that this subject has been discussed here prior to christmas. however, can anyone give me five reasons why caroline kennedy would make a good senator? :confused: i left a political message board because reasons, such as "she knows people," ''she deserves happiness," and "she'll keep camelot alive" were just too much to abide. she may be extremely intelligent, but she seems to be on a different page from the rest of america, entitled though she may be. :rolleyes: ;)

    She has the values Liberals love:

    1. Supported Obama
    2. She believes NAFTA should be looked at again.
    3. "Opposed the Iraq War from the beginning.
    4. Supports legislation legalizing same-sex marriage
    5. A strong supporter of gun control
    6. Pro-choice

    And she's an attorney.

    Maybe she has come to the point in her life that she realizes she can possibly make a difference. That does happen as your children get older and you become more aware of politics.

    Actually she may be able to do some good.

    She surely cannot be any worse thatn some of what this country has been voting into elected offices in the last twenty years.

    She has plenty of money so she is not as likely to be selling out for the money.

    She is a mother with concerns for the world her children will be living in.


    Star appeal is what people vote for these days. Money buys elected seats whether we like to admit it or not.

    at least your answers seem grounded in common sense and aren't what some paid handler probably advised her to say. i feel bad for cuomo, he's actually made an effort in NY. she seems practically bored to me.

    I can offer five reasons she'd make a likely senator:

    1.) Name recognition. Hate her, love her, or ambivalent about her, people have heard of her, which is the single biggest factor in American politics.
    2.) Nepotism. She comes from the most famous political dynasty in modern America. Who needs experience when your uncle has it?
    3.) Money. She's loaded (over $100 mil), she can afford ads and has lots of rich friends to help her out.
    4.) Possesses vagina. A woman can be replaced by a woman to not lower the amount of powerful female leaders. Enacting laws that promote gender equality are useless, token gender signifiers are what matter.
    5.) Obama. She was an outspoken supporter of the very popular incoming president, which garnered her a significant "fan base" and added to her long list of powerful friends.

    As for why she'd make a good senator? Ummm....

    I don't want her to have it just cause the arrogant bitch thinks she's entitled to it.

    Her main constituency are liberals. It's in their best interest to choose someone like themselves, not to mention she's a Kennedy and is therefore entitled to the office.
