Caroline Kennedy ‘absolutely’ would back Clinton
TOKYO (AP) — Caroline Kennedy says she could “absolutely” see herself endorsing Hillary Rodham Clinton for president but she has to decide soon whether to run.
Kennedy says she hopes Clinton will run. Kennedy was speaking in an interview with ABC News Thursday from Japan about President Barack Obama’s visit to the country, where she now is serving as U.S. ambassador.
Kennedy and her husband, Edwin Schlossberg, were maintaining a high profile Thursday, keeping close to the president’s side as he made his diplomatic visits.
Kennedy endorsed Obama in the 2008 Democratic presidential primary over Clinton. At the time she said she believed Obama could be a president like her father.
