    She's running for the seat, I polled the likely candidates.

    But if you want my opinion, at least Robin Carnahan is out there beating Republicans at the polls. Caroline Kennedy wants to be avoid the dirty work of actually talking to voters and getting elected.

      I'll always respect a Schweitzer, Webb, or Obama more than I'll respect someone who trades in familial connections to get ahead (e.g. Herseth, Sebelius, Clinton, the younger Biden, etc). It's an inevitable part of the system, sure, but I'm more impressed by the self-made over-achievers.

      And for the record, I opposed Russ Carnahan's House run in the primary in large part because of the "dynasty" aspect. But in this case, there is no primary. Robin will clear the field.
