-One of the founders of the Profiles in Courage Award, the award is given to elected officials who, risk their careers by pursuing a larger vision of the national, state or local interest in opposition to popular opinion or powerful pressures from their constituents.
“I have never had a president who inspired me the way people tell me that my father inspired them. But for the first time, I believe I have found the man who could be that president — not just for me, but for a new generation of Americans.”-Caroline Kennedy
I think she’s ready to take over her fathers senate seat. It’s only fitting that a young progressive woman take the seat of Hillary Clinton.
