I saw a joke in the comment section at Ace of Spades a while back about Caroline Kennedy. The person said that he saw Caroline's entrance essay in Harvard and all it said in a crayon was: "I am Caroline fucking Kennedy." Sure it's an old joke. I heard it regarding Prince William and when Chelsea Clinton was entering Stanford.
Caroline at Harvard was a resume enhancement. For Harvard. Caroline would have been accepted at any school she applied at. And the tenure of any professor be in question if she failed a class. So it's no surprise she graduated near the top of her class.
As for her work experience, any job she had, any fund raiser, any charity that wanted her involved is solely owed to her last name being 'Kennedy'. She wouldn't even be considered for the appointment of Hillery Clinton's old job if it wasn't for big uncle Ted pushing for her.
If Caroline really wants the Senate Seat, fine. Let her run a campaign, raise money, and debate her opponent when the time comes.
The day when Caroline runs her own campaign, wins against an entrenched politician, and moves on to an %70 approval rating (much like how Sarah Palin won as Governor), then she will be qualified to hold the Senate seat.
