Ambassador (Caroline) Kennedy: A star is born
Politico ^ | December 15, 2013 | Alexander Burns

Posted on 12/15/2013 8:22:26 AM PST by Zakeet

Caroline Kennedy is a long way from Syracuse.

The soft-spoken presidential scion, who four years ago this month toured upstate New York in a short and ill-fated bid for the U.S. Senate, has swept with force into her newest public role as President Barack Obama’s ambassador in Japan. And if the iconic daughter of American political royalty showed herself to be deeply uncomfortable as a glad-handing pol, she’s on her way to becoming something of a rock star in the more dignified world of diplomacy.

She has been swarmed by well-wishers in her public appearances, including Japanese men and women who offered their sympathies during the November anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s death. The Japanese TV network NHK delivered a live broadcast of her first appearance at Japan’s Imperial Palace, according to the AP, as throngs of onlookers crowded the streets. When Prime Minister Shinzo Abe appointed Japan’s first female prime ministerial aide, his office mentioned Kennedy’s role in Japan as an inspiration.

Kennedy has been awed by the reception, according to her friends and political associates. Yet far from being overwhelmed, Kennedy has eased into the role of ambassador far more smoothly and naturally than she did in her last high-profile adventure, as a contender for Hillary Clinton’s vacant Senate seat.

Like, she could like, you know, like barely speak English when she was like campaigning in New York. Maybe she uses an interpreter to speak in full sentences for her when she is on duty.

What’s Japanese for “you know”? Because without that she’ll be incapable of carrying on a conversation in the language.

It sure doesn’t take much to be a “star” these days. Another Kennedy hasn’t done jack **** and she’s already a “star”.

The soft-spoken presidential scion
Soft spoken? How about broken-spoken.

The accepted collective noun for a Kennedy reunion is a Plague of Kennedys.

"Positions as chief of mission should normally be accorded to career members of the Service. ... (Ambassadors) should possess clearly demonstrated competence to perform the duties of a chief of mission, including ... useful knowledge of the language ... and understanding of the history, the culture, the economic and political institutions, and the interests of that country. ... Contributions to political campaigns should not be a factor."

She speaks zero Japanese and has had no academic or professional background in foreign affairs.

“A woman who is, y’know...”

That constant ‘y’know’ from her was enough to make you want to scream y’know. Can’t believe she does that with her supposed education.

I recognize the last name, but does she really have what it takes to be a good ambassador?

Can she make small talk while eating exotic local food without vomiting?

And how many poses can she strike for selfies?

This strumpet helped serve up a large helping of Obamacrap to the American public in 2008. Like the other low-lives in the detestable Kennedy Klan, she should just go away.
