Ambassadorship for Caroline?

When I heard that Caroline Kennedy had thankfully pulled out of being crowned a Senator, my first thought was that she still wasn't likely to walk away completely empty-handed, after supporting the Obama candidacy.

It struck me that she might be rewarded with an ambassadorship...such as Ambassador to the Court of St. James, the position once held by her grandfather.

The Times of London (click title of post) is speculating that Caroline may receive the job.

One has to wonder, though, whether such an appointment would stir up memories of her grandfather advocating appeasing Hitler. Perhaps not such a good idea given the current state of the world.

And if Caroline's husband felt her moving to Washington would jeopardize their rocky marriage, as has been reported, a foreign country probably wouldn't go over well either.

We shall see.
