Caroline may bring ethics to the senate!

With all of the drama swirling around some of the most technically qualified politicians these days , one would think the last question related to Caroline Kennedy’s quest for the New York Senate seat would be her lack of political experience.

First of all she would be replacing Hillary Clinton which many have debated her qualification to first hold the seat initially, and later her qualifications to run for president. With all of those questions from critiques she ends her career in the senate as one of the most respected and powerful members. Therefore that is a mute argument.

There are several reasons she is well worth looking at for this position, first of all she is independently wealthy so we know she is not seeking the riches to be gained in the political arena, and power, prestige and privilege she already has, therefore her chances of disgracing us is far less than anyone else who would potentially want the second most important open senate seat.

Let’s keep in mind how hot senate seats are these days and New York has just as tough of a reputation as Chicago. Well not that there Governor would ever try to sell the seat, but lets face it there are some heavy hitters in the political field there and the city is strongly in favor of having things there way when it comes to who gets Clinton’s seat.

The whole legacy of the Clinton’s and Kennedy’s makes no difference to anyone other than the politicians debating the matter. The citizens are way to busy worrying about job loss, foreclosures and food cost, so which dynasty is in place is not a real life issue, and from the looks of it, experience is not all that its cranked up to be when it comes to some politicians.

Greed, power and deceit seems to lure politicians, many with legal backgrounds to the lowest of places, and while there they are far removed from the average citizen, caring only about themselves, power, prestige and money. My thoughts are if you have an opportunity to eliminate those from the mix chances are you could have a great senator, and Kennedy is removed from all three, she needs nothing but a platform to do what her family has done for years and that is simply service.
