Senator Caroline Kennedy (D-NY).
Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of the late President John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, has decided to pursue the U.S. Senate seat to be vacated by Hillary Clinton.
A source close to Kennedy told the New York Times of her decision.
Caroline Kennedy, will ask New York Gov. David Patterson to consider her for the appointment. If appointed, Ms. Kennedy would fill the seat once held by her uncle, Robert Kennedy.
