161. are you willing or even able to explain how each one would be superior to Caroline?
Do you even know their names? There is every reason to believe that Kennedy will have an immediate impact in the Senate, just as Hillary Clinton did and just as Jim Webb did. Why did those particular senators make more of a splash than the average freshman? Because they brought with them something that other Senators wanted to be associated with -- in HRC's case, her name and connections; in Webb's case, his military background. Kennedy will likely have an immediate impact because of her name and connections as well as because she is a published author on constitional issues relating to the bill of rights and the right to privacy -- issues near and dear (one would hope) to the Democratic faithful. Can you truly say that any of the other 28 senators that you claim to be presumptively superior to Caroline could even approach having that level of imapact?
