Re: Joe Guzzardi's Column: Joe To Caroline Kennedy—Stick To The Cocktail Circuit!
Now it appears that Kennedy's niece and would-be U.S. Senator Caroline, who spoke out in favor of amnesty—if talking through your advisors can be called speaking out—may soon be forced to abandon her campaign.
Guzzardi predicted that Kennedy would withdraw from the Senate race. That would be Kennedy's best option because it seems increasingly less likely that Gov. David Paterson will choose her.
In the past two weeks, numerous stories revealed that Kennedy refuses to release her financial records and has not contributed to any Democratic candidate despite her declaration of party loyalty.
This news comes on top of discoveries about Kennedy's spotty voting history and her refusal to submit to probing press interviews.
Kennedy's curious statement that, if appointed, she'll: "…have to work twice as hard," tells me that she's only half as qualified.[Kennedy Tells AP She'll Have to Work Twice as Hard, by Larry Neumeister, Associated Press, December 23, 2008]
And New York Daily News columnist Michael Goodwin called Kennedy's campaign a "…cringe-inducing experience, as painful to watch as it must be to endure."[Say Goodnight Caroline, by Michael Goodwin, Daily News, December 28, 2008]
Whether Kennedy pulls out or is passed over doesn't matter.
The important thing is that she's denied.
