I really liked this segment of 60 MInutes from Sunday about Caroline Kennedy being the United States Ambassador to Japan, and liked it on a lot of levels. At its most basic, of course, was seeing someone so iconic to American history as a child grown up and doing so well. It was fascinating, as well, to see her simply wanting to do such serious work for her country (and hard not to harken her father's admonition to ask what you can do for your country).. And it was wonderful, too, to see her actually doing such a terrific and admired job, and how deeply and enthusiastic the Japanese have taken to her. Yet beyond all that, it was a terrific story even if had been about any U.S. Ambassador to Japan, as a look at U.S. relations in the Far East.
Mainly though, she just comes across great.
