Is Caroline Kennedy Going The Affirmative Action Route?

Caroline Kennedy has been the buzz in political circles since she expressed interest in the New York senate seat now being vacated by Sen. Hillary Clinton. Yesterday she met with Rev. Al Sharpton at Sylvia's Restaurant, and was bombarded by throngs of reporters once the two exited the restaurant.

The New York Daily News writes that Kennedy shouldn't be given the seat by Gov. David Paterson simply because she's the last remaining child of John F. Kennedy. There will be heavy pressure on Paterson to appoint Kennedy to the seat, as she endorsed our incoming president-elect and was part of the V.P. vetting process. With Obama, Clinton, and now Sharpton in her corner Kennedy will probably get appointed to the post. The fact that she has a passion for education seals the deal in my opinion.
