Strong opinions, weakly held

Bringing a legacy into the Senate

Marc Ambinder reminds us that Caroline Kennedy is a legacy pick, not a beneficiary of nepotism.

As a practical matter, I’ll throw in my hat with Ross Douthat. If Caroline Kennedy wants to enter a Democratic primary, raise money, and campaign for a Senate seat, I wish her well. To request appointment to the Senate on the basis of no practical political experience whatsoever is just silly. And the soap opera-esque aspects of the whole thing make me want to throw up.

  1. I think that’s a valid argument, and one she should make while trying to get elected to something. I think the bar is higher when asking to be appointed to a very high position in government.
