There are so many things I could tell her if she asked. For one, I'd ask her why in the world she wants to get into the Senate scene? Doesn't she know about the stress that can cause? If she does go there, by Governor Patterson's decree, she'll need a lot of my advice to keep her in a healthy condition.Do You Think She Knows?
Sometimes it can take 6 years to approve legislation. Yeah, six years. Does she really want to be in a city of lots of gridlock for that long? That's if she is appointed and then elected in 2010.
I wonder if she knows that it can take six years or how many bills introduced are never voted on. I read that the 109th Congress introduced 6,436 pieces of legislation and only 316 were approved and signed.
If Carolyn asked me, I'd advise her to stay in New York and write to her Congressmen; or get a petition going to send to her Congressmen; or get a phone bank bombarding her Congressmen to get things done for NY. She'd probably get a piece of Legislation passed much faster that way.
I'd tell her to work for New York from NY. I have a suspicion that Hillary Clinton is thrilled to get out of there. She wasn't able to accomplish much of anything during her few years. She didn't even get a committee chairperson spot.
If Caroline Kennedy asked me, I tell her to go back to doing what she does best. Whatever she thinks that is.
That's what I'd tell her, if Caroline Kennedy asked me.
