    [size=+5]CAROLINE KENNEDY ENDS SENATE SEAT BID[/size]

    Caroline Kennedy has told Gov. David Paterson that she is withdrawing her name from consideration to replace outgoing Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton in the U.S. Senate, The Post has learned.

    Kennedy cited "personal reasons," according to sources.

    Her stunning move comes as sources revealed that Paterson had intended to appoint her to the now-vacant seat today.

    The 51-year-old Camelot daughter's decision removes the highest-profile name in the ring to step into Clinton's seat, as she departs after getting confirmed as President Obama's Secretary of State today.

    I'm very glad about this. I was strongly against Caroline being handed the seat because most of her work has been devoted to glorifying the Kennedy name, not to public service. I love the Kennedy's, but felt handing her the position would be a disgrace to those Kennedys who, like them or not, worked hard for the public to earn their place in history.

    The only problem with this is that New York's governor might now promote someone even WORSE than the princess.


    Who in hell is "Steve Israel", any way?? What's he stand for?? War without end in the Middle East??

    Wow Fog we agree on something. I got sick of her campaining for the job. She has no experience ( all though a lot of senators don't) but it was the way she went about it. As you alluded to she seemed to feel (because she is a Kennedy) she was entitled to the job.

    No need to resort to calling her disparaging names unless you have a doctor's note excusing yourself from civil discourse.

    Your headline is wrong. She was "put back on the shelf," not "pulled from the shelf." Anyway, I hope she's gone for good. She's about as unqualified as it gets.

    Caroline Kennedy is probably a very nice decent person but where she really belongs is on a beach somewhere pouring water on beached whales.

    Her Mother tried very hard to bring her kids up "Not To Be Kennedy's" Jackie knew what that tribe was like and she didn't want her children following in their footsteps, Jackie did a good job.

    By stepping down from Clinton's vacant seat can she still wait in the wings for Uncle Teddy's seat? I bet he's not far from stepping down himself and it's probably no accident that she announced this just after his recent collapse, I dunno? Plus it gives her time to hone her public speaking skills...you know. :D

    Awesome point! Hadnt thought about the Massachusetts angle. Plus, in Massachusetts, she wont have to answer any questions about anything.

    I had been thinking it would be Joe Kennedy who would get the seat reserved for the Kennedy family until the end of time but I think you might be on to something.

    Heard a story about her from someone once: She was having a loud party in her apartment. A neighbor knocked on the door and politely ask that she turn down the music, to which she replied, "DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?!" She then slammed the door in his face. She'll never get my vote.

    I used to drive taxi in Hyannis in my youth. One late night in 1981, i got a call to the Compound to take one of them and his girlfriend to Truro.
    She was just fine, he was the whiniest little jerk i ever met in my life, kept complaining about the car and that i wasnt going fast enough. No tip of course.
    it was dark so i'll never know which one, im pretty sure it was one of Bobby's kids. Might have been Michael the Skier. The age was about right.

    This is something people forget, wasnt Caroline questioned about her knowledge of where David got the drugs that killed him?

    "Do You Know Who I Am" is what they were all taught to say when they first leaned how to speak, the two Places that they all use it the most are "At Airports" and when they are about to be Arrested for Drunk Driving or Rape.

    The Clintons--The Kennedys:
    Will they ever "Go Away"
