Funny, I could have sworn Obama supporters used to say something about his election heralding the end of non-deserving American dynasties?

“The crazy speculation about Hillary Clinton’s Senate seat may not be so crazy after all. A Democrat who would know tells ABC News that New York governor David Paterson has talked to Caroline Kennedy about taking the seat, which was once held by her uncle, Robert F. Kennedy. It’s not exactly shocking that Paterson would reach out to one of the most highly respected public figures in New York, but this is: Sources say Kennedy is considering it, and has not ruled out coming to Washington to replace Hillary Clinton in the Senate.

It’s hard to see how promoting a member of the Clinton family and filling her old spot with a Kennedy marks the end of dynastic American politics.
