Kennedy cites 'personal reasons' for ending bid


ALBANY, N.Y. – Caroline Kennedy has ended her quest for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Hillary Rodham Clinton, halting a campaign that began with popular support but withered quickly over criticism about her experience and her reluctance to answer questions about her finances.

Is the love affair with ALL THINGS KENNEDY over?

So it was personal reasons and had absolutely nothing to do with her being completely unqualified for the job. I'm so relieved.

Fark.com's headline was truly classic for this story

"I, you know, informed Governor Paterson today, you know, um, that for personal reasons, you know, I am withdrawing my name, um, you know, from consideration for the, er, you know, United States Senate" Okay, so NOW it's official

Yeah, she's definitely not the person for a senate seat. Just because she was a President's daughter, doesn't make her the right choice. Sounds like the Governor wasn't going to pick her anyway.
But good times.
