Hillary vs. Caroline
How do you compare and contrast Hillary Clinton's initial candidacy for senator for NY with Caroline Kennedy's?
Obvious comparisons are that both have famous-family star power, neither had held elected office before, and both doubled-down on X chromosomes.
Is the widespread razzing of Caroline's aptness for the role fair (by dint of her low public profile), but what Hillary encountered wasn't fair (by dint of her healthcare czar work, writing and other First Lady-related experiences, and the CDS that fueled many of the insults)?
Is the fact that Kennedy's making her move for a Governor's pick rather than an election germane to assessing her fitness for the job?
I haven't made my mind up about what I think of CK's candidacy, but I do see echoes of the diminution that Hillary was subjected to in her first Senate run and think the compare/contrast exercise might be worthwhile.
It may be that there are massive differences between the appropriateness of the two candidacies, or there may not. Please enlighten!
