Ambassador Caroline Kennedy

This has been in the works for a while, but it’s still a little mind-boggling to see it happen.

President Obama nominated Caroline Kennedy, daughter of former President John F. Kennedy, to be ambassador to Japan on Wednesday.

Kennedy, whose early and strong support for Obama’s 2008 bid gave his candidacy a key boost in helping him win the nomination over then- front-runner Sen. Hillary Clinton, had been expected to get a top job in the administration.

The move, anticipated for several months, comes after Tokyo recently gave its approval to receive the first woman U.S. ambassador to Japan.

I know I’m showing my age, but it seems like only yesterday she was riding her pony around on the White House lawn.  Yes, that was fifty years ago.

Good luck, Madame Ambassador.

  1. Macaroni the pony. I remember the two of them as if it were yesterday–after you reminded me. Thanks. I think she’ll represent our country quite well.
