Caroline Kennedy

The big political story from the US has been Caroline Kennedy's interest in taking over the family business of politics - despite having little to no experience.

Political commentators have been comparing Caroline's entry into US politics with that of Sarah Palin, whom many agree to be far more qualified than Kennedy.

So, should Kennedy be given the Senate ticket based upon the family name - or should she earn her position.

My opinion - she should earn it - it would given her more political "street cred" and not seriously impair the political aspirations of many other women who have fought hard for their positions, either within Congress or the Senate.

Jobs for boys - the "old school tie" scenario.

Here's a commentary from CNN's Hank Sheinkopf.

What do others think.
