ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Caroline Kennedy has pointed to her experience as a lawyer, an education advocate and an author of books as well as her family’s long history of public service as qualifying her to be a senator representing the state of New York (“Kennedy ‘you knows’ tick off political audiences,” Politics, Wednesday). Based on that, if Mrs. Kennedy’s family members had been Army generals and Navy admirals instead of president, attorney general, senators and representatives, I guess she would be qualified to be chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has a son in the U.S. Army and is the commander in chief of the Alaska National Guard. Can we appoint her secretary of the Army?
