    IMHO he is socially liberal. But then again that is because I am very socially conservative.

    Caroline Kennedy

    I'm only 15 minutes away from the Kennedy Compound in Hyannisport and believe me, she's more than entiltled. Notice, I didn't say she was "qualified". Liberals are morons. The media is enthralled because she is a lib. They don't give a damn about qualifications.....unless it is a conservative who's looking to qualify!

    By the way, how many of us knew Obama was a smoker prior to the election??? Hmmmmm....somethin' is rotten in Denmark.....isn't it the libs who have been bashing smokers and banning smoking in legal, private establishmentsts across the fruited plain??? Hello?

    Nothing about this statement is an "opinion." He's liberal and it's a verifiable fact. Just look at his voting record and many of thhe statements he's made and that should tell you everything you need to know.

    Sarah Palin: Caroline Kennedy being treated favorably by the media

    Palin: Media goes easy on Kennedy - Yahoo! News

    Gov. Sarah Palin (R-Alaska) believes Caroline Kennedy is getting softer press treatment in her pursuit of the New York Senate seat than Palin did as the GOP vice presidential nominee because of Kennedy’s social class.

    “I’ve been interested to see how Caroline Kennedy will be handled and if she will be handled with kid gloves or if she will be under such a microscope,” Palin told conservative filmmaker John Ziegler during an interview Monday for his upcoming documentary film, “How Obama Got Elected.” Excerpts from the interview were posted on YouTube Wednesday evening.

    “It’s going to be interesting to see how that plays out and I think that as we watch that we will perhaps be able to prove that there is a class issue here also that was such a factor in the scrutiny of my candidacy versus, say, the scrutiny of what her candidacy may be.”

    Palin said she remains subject to unfair press coverage of her and her family.

    “Is it political? Is it sexism?” she asked. “What is it that drives someone to believe the worst and perpetuate the worst in terms of gossip and lies?”

    She observed that Katie Couric and Tina Fey have been “capitalizing on” and “exploiting” her.

    “I did see that Tina Fey was named entertainer of the year and Katie Couric’s ratings have risen,” she said. “And I know that a lot of people are capitalizing on, oh I don’t know, perhaps some exploiting that was done via me, my family, my administration. That’s a little bit perplexing, but it also says a great deal about our society.”

    The Alaska governor said that when she sees some of the coverage of her daughter Bristol especially “the momma grizzly rises up in me.”

    Looking back on the Couric interviews, Palin said she knew things were not going well after their first session and asked the McCain campaign to pull the plug on the remaining sit downs but insisted the campaign made her go through with the rest.

    “I knew it didn’t go well the first day, and then we gave her a couple of other segments after that. And my question to the campaign was, after it didn’t go well the first day, why were we going to go back for more?” she said. “Because of however it works in that upper echelon of power brokering in the media and with spokespersons, it was told to me that, yeah, we are going to go back for more. And going back for more was not a wise decision either.”

    Palin criticized Couric for the way CBS “spliced it together,” saying that “so many of the topics brought up were not portrayed as accurately as they could have, should have, been.”

    She also expressed frustration with Couric’s characterization of her since the interviews. After being shown a clip of Couric complaining to David Letterman that no post-election interviewer has asked Palin why she would not tell the CBS anchor what newspapers she reads, the Alaska governor responded: “Because, Katie, you’re not the center of everybody’s universe.”

    New Yorkers prefer Andrew Cuomo over Caroline Kennedy

    Of course liberals and feminists believe that a woman should only be replaced by a woman, rather than the most qualified person, regardless of what their gender is.

    New Yorkers Favor Cuomo for U.S. Senate, Poll Says - Yahoo! News

    Jan. 14 (Bloomberg) -- New York voters prefer Attorney General Andrew Cuomo over Caroline Kennedy for the U.S. Senate seat held by Hillary Clinton, a Quinnipiac University poll found.

    Voters favored Cuomo over Kennedy, 31 percent to 24 percent, with 29 percent divided among others, according to the poll. Forty-eight percent said Kennedy isn’t qualified for the job, while 37 percent said she is. Kennedy is the daughter of former President John F. Kennedy and has never held public office.

    “Caroline Kennedy’s stumbling start in her first interviews may have cost her the lead,” Maurice Carroll, director of Quinnipiac’s polling institute, said in a statement.

    Governor David Paterson has promised to appoint Clinton’s successor soon after she is confirmed as U.S. Secretary of State. A Senate vote is expected in next week.

    “There’s only one New Yorker whose opinion counts, of course, Governor David Paterson; and a plurality of the rest of us still think that Paterson will pick Kennedy,” Carroll said.

    Most respondents, 38 percent, said Paterson will appoint Kennedy; 31 percent said he wouldn’t.

    The Quinnipiac survey of 1,664 New York registered voters was conducted Jan. 8-12 and had a margin of error of plus or minus 2.4 percentage points

    As long as the woman is way left of center. I noticed that the libers did not like Palin.
