Should Caroline "inherit" Hillary's seat? I do not doubt her intelligence (hey, she went to college with yours truly, more or less) or aptitude and I see no reason why she wouldn't be a good senator. However, she hasn't earned it, and there are better qualified New Yorkers who should rank ahead of her. I am not a huge fan of Andrew Cuomo but what about Carolyn Maloney, who I think was my old congresswoman? And not that great oratorical skill is essential but I was suprised by Caroline's weak delivery at the convention. Perhaps she was nervous but I expected a little more presence (she did look fabulous, however).
