Kennedy's first endorsement - Louise Slaughter
Edited on Mon Dec-15-08 07:36 PM by Pirate Smile
Kennedy's first endorsement

Not a bad one: Upstate New York Rep. Louise Slaughter put out a statement just now endorsing Kennedy. Congresswoman Slaughter Endorses Caroline Kennedy for Senate, who she says "has spent her whole life fighting for what she believes in - she is a champion of public education, a lawyer, and an accomplished author."

"Caroline Kennedy understands that the stakes have never been higher for our state and our nation. We need our next Senator to have the skills and the stature to help bring about the change we need," Slaughter said, echoing Obama's slogan.

Kennedy will presumably have to make some sort of public statement in the next 48 hours, and once she does, the question will be whether that triggers a flood of endorsements.

One question, to which I haven't been able to find the answer, that Slaughter's statement raised: Has Kennedy ever practiced law?

5. I've heard that the New York State bar exam is one of the toughest
and many people take more than once. Though most who have to do that don't have to deal with their failure being splashed all over the media.

8. Thank you, Rep Louise Slaughter for
that ringing endorsement of Caroline.

Here's another one from a DUer who knew Caroline Kennedy from where they worked at MMOA.

45. Well, let's see - Caroline Kennedy -
after finishing college, she interned with her uncle, Ted Kennedy, then went to work at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. That's where I know her from. She is a lawyer with 2 publications on civil liberties to her credit. She is president of the Kennedy Library Foundation and has worked extensively with the New York City Public Schools, first as chief executive of the Office of Strategic Partnerships for the NYC Dept. of Education and now as Vice Chair of The Fund for Public Schools. Additionally she has represented the Kennedy family at any number of official functions. She is very intelligent, passionate about civil liberties and the Constitution and knows her way around the American power structure. To me that makes her a very attractive candidate for the position of New York's junior senator.

I trust Caroline Kennedy's judgement just like I did Obama's.
