Is Caroline Kennedy the Democratic George W. Bush?
Both are children of presidents.
Both went off to college at their famous father’s alma mater.
Both held a series of jobs in which their prime qualification was their famous father.
Both never held public office before seeking a top office in a very large state.
Now we find reports that Caroline’s biggest backer, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg (R-Medford) and his chancellor, Joel Klein, are greatly inflating her part-time role in the New York City schools. Newsday is also reporting that Caroline has a sorry, spotty record when it comes to casting a ballot on election day.
With all that talent in New York State, why would the best candidate be someone with a famous name, a demonstrated disinterest in the basic elements of electoral politics, and no track record on the issues of the day?
