Sweet Caroline Sours In Upstate

by on December 18, 2008

Looks like princess Caroline wasn’t given the royal treatment during her upstate pandering yesterday.

Caroline Kennedy took a page from Hillary Clinton’s playbook and began an upstate listening tour On Wednesday.

The road trip included stops in Syracuse, Rochester and Buffalo to help convince Gov. David Paterson and voters she’s the one to replace Clinton in the U.S. Senate.

But it was a tough crowd.

The black SUV pulled up to Syracuse city hall Wednesday morning. It was stop one on Kennedy’s upstate tour.

But after meeting with Mayor Matt Driscoll, she ran into a buzz saw — angry reporters who wanted her to do more talking and less listening.

“But you’ve never held public office so what experience [do you have]?” one reporter asked.

Actually, she did speak briefly in Syracuse.

“I wanted to come upstate and meet with Mayor Driscoll and others to tell them about my experience and also learn more about how Washington can help these communities,” Kennedy said.

Her quick remarks fell flat. Reporters seemed to feel brushed off and they pursued her out.

“You’re not going to answer questions at all?” one asked.

“Where you headed next?” another demanded.

To the car.

Perhaps Caroline will realize she can do a lot for public image by staying out of politics and we can put this silliness behind us.
