Caroline may be a Kennedy, but she didn’t inherit her Dad’s intelligence that’s for sure. So let me get this straight libs in the press, Caroline “Like ya know” Kennedy is a genius but Sarah Palin who actually WORKS, is a governor of one of our largest states, no need for a bailout in Alaska, is a moron, Ok libs, now tell me that with a straight face

The video starts out labeling her as a “possible Senate candidate”.

But that implies that she’s going to RUN for the office in an ELECTION.

Hmmm.

That Schlosser guy - or whatever his name is - ya know, didn’t marry her for her looks, ya know, or her body - that’s obvious, ya know, and now its equally obvious, ya know, that he didn’t marry her, ya know, for her brains.

Or maybe she is speaking, ya know, in some white equivalent of “Ebonics” peculiar, ya know, to liberal New Yorkers, ya know, who aren’t particularly bright themselves, ya know.

Her legal name is Caroline Bouvier Kennedy. She did not take Schlossberg as her surname when she married.

I did a seminar once where I had to do openning an closing statements and everytime I said “you know” or even if I said “and” the audience members slammed their hands on the their tables. It was videotaped and then I had to watch it with a trainer. Very painful. I couldn’t wait to throw away that video tape.

Ya know, I think Caroline is just emulating the “smartest woman in the world” ... she whose seat Caroline feels a certain entitlement to, and who also gave voice to many “ya know”s whilst speaking extemporaneously.

You know BEEEEEP.

Toastmasters has the “Uh counter.” I don’t recall if “You know” counts too but after doing Toastmasters for awhile 1) You’ll never say “uh” again in a public forum, and 2) every time somebody else does, or says something like “uh” (you know?) you’ll catch it.

Caroline is intelligent enough to get a law degree and write a couple of books.

She probably has a better than average I.Q.

Rich and well connected people do not require higher than an average I.Q. to get into law school. That requirement is waived in lieu of a generous endowment.

As for the books, anyone with the money to hire a ghostwriter can write a book.

I think her name helped her into and through law school. Wonder what her class rank was? Law review? Or not...

She wrote children’s books. And anthologies of other written works.

Not so fast, my friend. I went to a presidential exhibit of past president's educations at the Eisenhower Museum in Abilene, Ks. One of the exhibits was JFK's grades from Harvard. He was barely a C student there.

Not hyphenated. She does not use “Schlossberg” at all in her name.

She does not hyphenate the names of her children, either. Their last name is Schlossberg, but all 3 have Kennedy as a middle name: Rose Kennedy Schlossberg, Tatiana Celia Kennedy Schlossberg, and John “Jack” Bouvier Kennedy Schlossberg.

“What is her legal name?”

Ms. Kennedy’s name, and remember that, until recently, “Ms. Kennedy” was, per the Times, not “Ms. Kennedy” at all, but “Ms. Schlossberg”—the married name by which, for the past twenty-odd years, the media have generally designated the princess of Camelot.

Uncle Teddy got kicked out of law school. John took the bar about 3 times before he passed. Caroline would seem to be smater than the Kennedy men!

JFK was no genius.

I think a lot of people find fault with others who have a famous name and lots of $$$.

Making judgements about people you don't even know is really--you know--costs nothing and requires nothing.

Yep, a true liberal at heart with the mucking up of even names.

At least the kids know who they are....I assume.

You can "think" anything you want to...as can I, but that doesn't make it so.

I can think you make snap judgements about people you don't know based on opinion, not facts.

Bottom line is---I don't give a flip who is appointed senator to replace Hillary because it will probably just be more of the same regardless of who get the nod. Of course, that is just my opinion based on no information from the NY gov.

“You know” is the one term that I am sick of. Just listen to ANY interview of a sports person telling about a play, game, something too do with sport and you have 600 you knows to every couple of real words. Like: “Well, you know, we went out there, you know, and we, you know, we did, you know, what, you know, what we were, you know, suppose to do, you know, on defense, you know, to defeat, you know, the other team, you know, the way, you know, the, you know, coaches told, you know, us to, you know, execute the, you know, game plan.” Just DRIVES YOU, YOU KNOW!!!, crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She didn’t, you know, inherit her Dad’s wit or charm, nor, you know, her Mom’s elegance and style, not to mention, you know, good looks.

She bears a strong resemblance to her Aunt, you know, Jackie’s sister, Princess Lee Radziwill.

She has always been known in NY as “Caroline Schlossberg” , you know, no Kennedy ever used in her name.

In case you didn’t know, you know she said “you know” 200 times in her interview, with, you know, Dominic Carter, you know, the interviewer from NY1.

Gee, perhaps your point is that the MSM promotes agenda trusting that most will fall for it with a mindset of "the MSM knows all" and us sheeple will accept their drivel without question? ; )

"...she didn't inherit her Dad's intelligence..."

What intelligence? JFK is the most overrated President of the 20th Century. You're probably not old enough to remember some of the most embarrassing live TV broadcasts with "Jackie's" tour of the White House, highlighted by an in-depth look at the historical art work: "Well...there's this picture here...and over there is another one..." Lest we forget Jackie's tour of the White House kitchen: "This is the kitchen. They cook our food here." Yes, the Kennedy brain trust disappeared long ago with the passing of old Joe Kennedy, and the Bouvier's added nothing to it. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend's (Caroline's cousin) failed bid for Governor of the most liberal state in the Union (Maryland) signaled "game over." Now I understand why John-John and Caroline were kept largely under wraps all those years. They're idiots. Hard to believe there's someone even more inarticulate than "The One," but here she is, "ya' know?"

My “judgement” is based on her interviews, what she says and how she says it. I don’t know her personally.

I don’t know Obama either, or Bill Clinton, or Hillary Clinton, or Al Gore, or John Kerry, etc either but I think I can have opinions about them in spite of that fact.

It seems she knew she had a good thing from the beginning. She probably kept her maiden name because she knew it would benefit her to have the name recognition later in life.

My guess is that you have heard much more from all those people over the years and have a total of less than 30 minutes of Caroline interviews.

Interestingly, one book she wrote several years ago was "The Right to Privacy" and she has been a private person. I'm surprised she would even want to get involved in politics---she hasn't made a habit of voting or contributing to political campaigns. I'm wondering if she has been pressured by family members to get involved.

BTW, none of the Kennedys have been known for their brain power.
