JFK’s daughter, and only remaining child, Caroline Kennedy may be ready to carry on the legacy of her namesake in the near future and we are cheering loudly!
As an Ambassador to Japan under President Obama, “She transformed herself from a celebrity into an influential public figure and statesman who became trusted, respected, liked and listened to,” said Daniel R. Russel of the State Department.
“I think most people don’t know about this, but Ambassador Kennedy was an exceptionally tough negotiator,” admitted Japan’s Foreign Minister, Fumio Kishida.
Perhaps that’s why Trump mocked her on the campaign trail, saying “she’ll do anything they want, anything!”
President Donald Trump of course didn’t give a flip about her accomplishments in Japan, and has promptly fired her.
Ironically, Trump may have created a very dangerous future Democratic political opponent.
The New York Post reports that Kennedy is now considering entering the political fray in 2018 as a U.S. House or Senate candidate.
Many insiders are talking about her as a potential presidential candidate in 2020 or 2024. Wouldn’t that be awesome!
“Caroline had a successful ambassadorial run in Japan and feels really very confident about putting her hat in the ring for a New York congressional or Senate seat, with even possibly bigger political objectives down the road,” said a source familiar with Kennedy’s plans, per The Post. “The presidency is on her mind now, believe me.”
The ultra-right-wing New York Post even described Ms. Kennedy in a headline as “Hillary Clinton without the baggage.”
We have all seen President Trump’s disastrous start as president. If Caroline Kennedy does in fact seek the Presidency in 2020, Trump’s latest move to fire her could shape up to be very costly.
