I like her. She played a powerful role in giving Obama momentum and worked for him, even going to farmers markets, getting in close with the grassroots folks.

She brings the same kind of credentials Hillary brought when she ran-- blood relation proximity to power. Hillary did pretty well.

There's magic in the Kennedy name that attracts power and support and love.

If she does eight years, and does well, she could be the first female president, following Obama. God save her from the Kennedy curse.

We don't have clear pronouncements of her positions yet, but she supported Obama. I hope she's more liberal than Obama.

We need more women in the senate. She qualifies.

She's smart, polished, knows the ropes in the world of power. Those are strong qualifications.

She's soooo different from Sarah Palin-- classy, smart, educated, sophisticated.

Even Republicans will have a hard time attacking the daughter of JFK.

She'd cream Rudi Giuliani come 2010 when there's a competitive race.

She's probably got the support of Michael Moore, who advised her to "pull a Cheney,", meaning, as a member of Obama's vice presidential selection committee, she should choose herself.

Besides Michael Moore, a poll of New Yorkers shows them favoring Kennedy over Andrew Cuomo 44% TO 23%, with all other possible candidates in the single digits.

She's a Harvard grad. Sound familiar?

She's a member of the NY and Washington D.C. bar associations.

Wikipedia reports:

She is one of the founders of the Profiles in Courage Award, given annually since 1990 to a person who exemplifies the type of courage examined in her father's Pulitzer Prize-winning book of the same name. The award is generally given to elected officials who, acting in accord with their conscience, risk their careers by pursuing a larger vision of the national, state or local interest in opposition to popular opinion or powerful pressures from their constituents.
