I feel for anyone who hasn’t got their chops down as a public speaker — it’s a tough thing to get right if you’re not a “natural” — but Caroline Kennedy has now embarassed herself to the point that there’s almost no chance that Gov. David Paterson will appoint her to Hillary Clinton‘s Senate seat. The smart thing right now would be to withdraw her name from consideration and salvage some dignity. A woman who’s worth $100 million obviously has options in life. She’ll be fine.
