Caroline Kennedy sworn in as ambassador to Japan

By Jill Dougherty

In a private ceremony Tuesday afternoon at the State Department, Caroline Kennedy was sworn in by Secretary of State John Kerry as U.S. ambassador to Japan.

The event was closed to media, but the State Department released a photo showing a smiling Kennedy dressed in a simple black dress, her right hand raised, her left resting on what looked like a Bible held by her husband, Edwin Schlossberg. Nearby, their son John "Jack" Schlossberg looked on, wearing a dark suit, hands in pockets, his shock of dark hair an uncanny reminder of his deceased uncle, John Kennedy Jr., Caroline's brother.

    Finally, a nice article on CNN. Caroline's son has a stunning resemblance to John Kennedy Jr. Pray no more trajedies for the family.

    Let it not be said that the United States is a meritocracy. In this country the name means everything regardless of the ability to carry out the job!
