There was plenty of Caroline Kennedy to go around this weekend and this morning. “Caroline Kennedy shares misty memories of Camelot,” said a Daily News article with pictures of JFK, JFK Jr. and Jackie O. The Times interviewed Kennedy, called her (in a painstakingly balanced headlined) “Forceful but Elusive,” and went to the unusual extent of supplying a transcript of the interview, in which she was mildly insulting to the reporters, which was perhaps mean to draw the anti-media New York Slimes-is-dying blog constituency into sympathy with her, though such people hate Kennedys almost as much as they do print newspapers that are not published by Rupert Murdoch.
“If you strip away the glamour, the name and the money, then Caroline is… me,” said Ann Glusker in the Washington Post, and Glusker, the Post tells us, is… “a freelance journalist living in France and the host of ‘Stir it Up,’ a weekly food program on Swiss radio,” who suggests that “if workers can no longer expect the security of a 50-year career, then maybe employers should stop expecting each and every job applicant to present them with an old-fashioned sequential resume,” and talks about her own, winding and putatively feminist journey to Swiss radio stardom.
Kennedy also spoke to NY1, whom she told that “If my last name weren’t Kennedy, maybe I would have run for office a long time ago,” though she refrains from suggesting how successful such a run might have been.
