Caroline Kennedy for Ambassador to Canada?

What the hell? Why doesn't she try for a job she's actually qualified for?

What about starring in a movie, "The Kennedy Queen's Speech"?

by Anonymousreply 402/07/2013

Won't happen. It'll probably be Granholm.

by Anonymousreply 502/07/2013

So what are the fucking responsibilities of the ambassador to Canada? Wear a parka and go ice skating once a year in Ottawa?

She's totally qualified.

by Anonymousreply 602/07/2013

Canada owns a big chunk of the US -- a bigger chunk than China.

They might enjoy having a Kennedy of their own.

Good fit charisma-wise.

Wouldn't she be wasted in a post like this? She seems to have more to offer than is called for, just being "diplomatic" with Canadians. It's not as if the two countries have serious issues between them.

Kennedy, on the other hand, seems just right for this. She'd be polite & gracious, & the Canadians might enjoy the prestige of having "American royalty" assigned to their country. Kind of like when Shirley Temple Black served as Ambassador to Ghana.

It's not a demanding diplomatic mission, she is well qualified, perhaps perfect for the job.

So much ignorance on this thread. There's a huge amount of trade between the two countries with highly integrated economies. It may not seem as exciting as far flung danger zones but it's very important in ways you don't even realize. There's that obnoxious pipeline from the tarsands for instance.

But carry on with your smug dismissals. They're sooo amusing.

Canadians speak like they're retarded too, so this will work out quite well for her.

by Anonymousreply 1702/07/2013

She speaks slowly and Canadians hear slowly. It will be perfect.

by Anonymousreply 1802/07/2013

Canadians end sentences with that strange sound. Caroline can out do them with "ya know" every other word.

It's one of the U.S.'s largest trading partners, contains a large number of American citizens, is a border country, and may be involved in the oil pipeline deal.

by Anonymousreply 2002/07/2013

Whose palm did she wax to get the job?

by Anonymousreply 2102/07/2013

She will cut the red ribbon at the grand opening the pipeline opens. And thank Andrew Cuomo when he approves fracking.

by Anonymousreply 2302/07/2013

She is a member of America's Royal family, that makes her more than qualified.

by Anonymousreply 2402/07/2013

Hardly, R22. More likely she'll have to cart off all the Americans trying to sneak into Canada for employment.

by Anonymousreply 2502/07/2013

True, R25. Canada is doing better economically than America right now, and has a lower unemployment rate.

Gee, thanks but we already have an actual Royal Family.

Oh Caroline -- no.

Granholm makes more sense for the post since she's Canadian.

[quote]She will stand at the border welcoming Canadians who've waited months for medical treatment, which will taken care of here in a few days.

So glad we get instant medical treatment here in the U.S. Last July I was told I needed an operation by the doctor at the Veterans Administration. I'm still waiting for the operation.

Granholm should rush back to Michigan to save her state from the wingnuts. Everything has done gone the hill since she left office.

by Anonymousreply 3402/08/2013

Why not? How much smooshing do the Canadians need? It's not like they can pick up and move. That border's a LONG sucker

Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird met with John Kerry in Washington today and was asked about the Caroline Kennedy rumors.

by Anonymousreply 3802/08/2013

Michigan was never really Granholm's state. It was a springboard. She is pretty nuts.

Canada's still the US's single largest trading partner in the entire world. It's not a "fluff" ambassadorship.

If the President really wants to do something for Caroline, he can give her Bermuda or Lichtenstein, some country like that. She probably thinks those posts are beneath her but that level is actually where she belongs.

by Anonymousreply 4202/08/2013

All I know about her is that she's a bit of a marble mouth.

by Anonymousreply 4302/08/2013

She's a smart lady. She could head NEA or get a high level post in the Justice Department. She just isn't an ambassador.

by Anonymousreply 4402/10/2013

Does she, umm, like Canada? Umm like where is it? Can my, I mean her Jewish husband get in the country or is there like, umm, a quota?
