Suburban Mom's Political Fix: A Few Last Words on Caroline Kennedy's Failed Senate Bid

Caroline Kennedy exited the odd campaign for the U.S. Senate -- where the only person whose vote was required was New York Gov. David Paterson's who'd be appointing Hillary Clinton's replacement -- was ugly and odd.

While I was pleased to see an active work-life balancer in the form of 42-year-old Kirsten Gillibrand get the nod (she has a 5-year-old and a baby, to whom she gave birth during her second year as a Congresswoman), I was saddened by the collapse of the Kennedy bid.

I opined on the subject at length in my weekly Mommy Track'd column.
