Path to Power
Kennedy's 1,000 days living in the White House as a young girl represent a unique chapter in American history, an era that was at once romantic and tragic.
Little Girl in the White House
Born on Nov. 27, 1957, near the end of John Fitzgerald Kennedy's first Senate term, Caroline was a toddler when her father accepted the Democratic presidential nomination in 1960. She rushed to greet him when he returned to Hyannis Port from Los Angeles and was blinded by flashbulbs. The little girl burst into tears.
Kennedy has staked out traditionally liberal positions on most social issues, at least those she has addressed in public.
She is pro-abortion rights and appears to oppose restrictions such as parental notification laws, although she has not directly addressed the issue of late-term abortions.
