Book: Kennedy ended Senate bid to please her kids

Book: Kennedy ended Senate bid to please her kids

A new book paints a picture of an intense, angry Caroline Kennedy bent on extending her family's legacy in the U.S. Senate only to end her quest when her kids no longer recognized their cool, composed mother.
The book is by Edward Klein, a best-seller who's been accused of using of hearsay in other biographies.
"Ted Kennedy: The Dream That Never Dies," is being excerpted in Vanity Fair. Caroline Kennedy was under consideration for a vacant Senate seat but told New York Gov. David Paterson she was withdrawing from consideration because her kids and husband felt she was becoming a different person.
The book also says she was angry when Paterson didn't immediately name her to succeed Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Kennedy spokesmen declined to comment Tuesday.
