Caroline Kennedy Comes Out for Gay Marriage

From the Left: Caroline Kennedy, who is seeking the soon-to-be-vacated U.S. Senate seat held by Hillary Clinton, is sharing some of her political opinions with the people she’s campaigning to represent.
Following in the solid liberal tradition of uncle Ted Kennedy and rejecting Barack Obama’s regressive position on the subject, Kennedy says she fully supports same-sex marriage.
Ackerman compares Caroline Kennedy to Palin - Mike Soraghan , The Hill: “They’ve basically Sarah Palin-ized her, if I could coin a phrase,” said Rep. Gary Ackerman (D-N.Y.), referring to the Alaska governor and former GOP vice presidential candidate criticized for being sheltered from the media. “They’re answering questions that you have to submit in writing. She’s not talking to reporters as she makes this grand tour. They’re, kind of, building a mystique and an industry around her, when we need somebody to fight.”
Critics also hammered home the criticism that she’s a viable candidate primarily because she’s the daughter of slain President John F. Kennedy.
“Rembrandt was a great artist,” Ackerman said on CBS’s “Face the Nation”. “His brother Murray, on the other hand, Murray Rembrandt wouldn’t paint a house.”
