Harsh Reviews for Caroline Kennedy, You Know?

Dec 29, 2008 9:56am

In the New York Daily News, Michael Goodwin writes: "Kennedy is not ready for the job and doesn’t deserve it. Somebody who loves her should tell her. Her quest is becoming a cringe-inducing experience, as painful to watch as it must be to endure. Because she is the only survivor of that dreamy time nearly 50 years ago, she remains an iconic figure. But in the last few days, her mini-campaign has proved she has little to offer New Yorkers except her name."

The New York Times transcript of its interview with Kennedy reveals her using the verbal tic "you know" 142 times, as first counted by an abacus-wielding Ben Smith.
