Another Kennedy Wants A Senate Seat
Caroline Kennedy's attempts to snag another Senate seat for the Kennedy namesake in New York may be getting rebuffed, but that isn't stopping another Kennedy, Christopher Kennedy, from dropping less than subtle hints that he would like to take Barack Obama's place in the Senate. Kennedy runs the Merchandise Mart in Chicago. The 45-year-old son of the late Sen. Robert Kennedy has used the Kennedy name to help raise some campaign dollars for local Democrats. Like Caroline, his only qualification is his last name.
