Caroline Kennedy (Schlossberg), was born November 27, 1957, and is the daughter of John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis and niece of Senator Edward M. Kennedy. She is a writer and lawyer who resides in New York City. She is a member of the John F. Kennedy Library Board, Kennedy Foundation, American Ballet Theater and the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award foundation.
In 2008, she served as a member of the advisory committee suggesting vice-presidential nominees for Barack Obama's presidential campaign.
In December 2008, she announced that she wants to be appointed to fill the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Hillary Clinton, despite the fact that Caroline Kennedy "has never held political office or shaped public policy."
While Caroline Kennedy was a strong early choice to be appointed, her "campaign" fell apart during her interviews, when many average citizens saw that Caroline Kennedy may not have been as sharp as she was put out to be. It is also widely suspected that Caroline Kennedy would not even have been in the question if she wasn't a Kennedy.
