Caroline Kennedy and 'A President Like my Father'

Caroline Kennedy's op-ed in the NY Times has been the most popular article today. Titled A President Like My Father I was intrigued.

I want a president who understands that his responsibility is to articulate a vision and encourage others to achieve it; who holds himself, and those around him, to the highest ethical standards; who appeals to the hopes of those who still believe in the American Dream, and those around the world who still believe in the American ideal; and who can lift our spirits, and make us believe again that our country needs every one of us to get involved.

I have never had a president who inspired me the way people tell me that my father inspired them. But for the first time, I believe I have found the man who could be that president — not just for me, but for a new generation of Americans.

I want a president like friend's dad, he can eat an entire pizza with all the toppings in one sitting. If our president could do that, he could just challenge any disagreeing nation to a pizza eating contest.

That might help with the situation in North Korea ... ;)

You're talking about a great big American pizza, aren't you?
