After weeks of speculation and whispers, Caroline Kennedy made it known that she would like New York Gov. David Paterson to appoint her to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's vacated Senate seat.
"She's interested in the position," Paterson said. "She'd like at some point to sit down and tell me what she thinks her qualifications are."
Americans have been saying "Senator Kennedy" for 55 years. But the always reserved Caroline Kennedy has never been seen as a shoo-in for the family business.
