Caroline Kennedy bows out of Senate bid

The New York Times reports tonight that Caroline Kennedy has decided to withdraw her bid to be named to the U.S. Senate out of her concern for her uncle's health.

Sen. Edward Kennedy had a seizure yesterday during a luncheon to honor President Barack Obama on his inauguration day. Kennedy was released today. He suffers from brain cancer.

However, his niece said his care was her No. 1 priority which would prevent her from holding a high profile position.

Certainly, her wishes are understandable. But it is a great loss for the country.
