Caroline Kennedy (1957-), the eldest child of President John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) and Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy (1929-1994), is a lawyer and author. At age 3 she moved into the White House with her parents and younger brother John Kennedy Jr. (1960-1999). Following her father’s 1963 assassination, she and her brother were raised in Manhattan by their mother. Kennedy graduated from Radcliffe College and Columbia Law School. In 1986 she married Edwin Schlossberg (1945-); they have three children. Kennedy has written books about civil liberties, among other topics, and published a series of literary anthologies. In 2008 the famously private Kennedy endorsed Barack Obama (1961-) for president and joined him on the campaign trail. She has never held public office, although in late 2008 she announced her interest in the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Hillary Clinton (1947-). Kennedy later withdrew her name from consideration for the job.
