Not Sweet on Caroline

Click here for a sneak preview of the New York Times interview with Caroline Kennedy to be published tomorrow (Sunday).

If you read between the lines, or the lines themselves, it looks like it was a disaster. Best line:

. . .when asked Saturday morning to describe the moment she decided to seek the Senate seat, Ms. Kennedy seemed irritated by the question and said she couldn’t recall.

“You guys ever think about writing for a woman’s magazine?” she asked the reporters. “I thought you were the crack political team.”

More concerning than her Bloombergian contempt of the press, she couldn't name one issue where she disagreed with the democratic party OR the Mayor. To me, that reeks of someone who really doesn't know the issues.

As I've said before, the press' role in this outdated process is more important than ever with no debates, voting record, or campaign speeches to learn about the candidate.
