Caroline Kennedy - Full Episode (44:56)
As a young adult, Caroline Kennedy hoped to become a reporter. But she realized early-on that as a Kennedy, she would always be the story.
Although Caroline takes after her mother's shyness and sophistication, she is also her own person with a more relaxed and down-to-earth personality.
After the death of her father in 1963, Caroline Kennedy became even closer to the already close-knit Kennedy family, especially with her female cousins.

Caroline Kennedy serves as a member of the national board of directors for the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, vice chair for the Fund for Public Schools in New York City, and chief executive for the New York City Department of Education Office of Strategic Partnerships.
the normally very private Caroline Kennedy made headlines when she was rumored as a possible candidate for Hillary Clinton's vacant Senate seat. Caroline later withdrew her bid for the post, citing personal reasons.
On July 24, 2013, Caroline was nominated U.S. ambassador to Japan by President Barack Obama, putting to rest much speculation in the media regarding her likelihood to win the title. She was officially approved by the U.S. Senate in October. Caroline succeeded John Roos, who has served as Japan's U.S. ambassador since August 2009. Among those to formerly hold the role are Walter Mondale, Howard Baker and Tom Foley.
In an interview with The New York Times, Kurt M. Campbell, who formerly served as assistant secretary of state for East Asian affairs, discussed his confidence in Caroline fulfilling her anticipated role: "For those who say she doesn't know a lot about Japan, I say 'sure,' but neither did Walter Mondale," he said, adding, "What you really want in an ambassador is someone who can get the president of the United States on the phone. I can't think of anybody in the United States who could do that more quickly than Caroline Kennedy."
Caroline Kennedy and Edwin Schlossberg have three children: Rose, Tatiana and Jack. They currently reside in New York City.

There's no such thing as royalty in the United States, but if anyone has ever come close to that level, it's the Kennedy family. For 64 years, Washington had at least one Kennedy in public office. Descended from Irish Catholics who fled the potato famine, the family has a strong tradition in the Democratic party, the most prominent member being President John F. Kennedy. In addition to fame and political power, the Kennedy clan has had more than its fair share of tragedy—several members of the family have died in accidents and assassinations, in what's been called the "Kennedy curse."
