Caroline Kennedy offered ambassadorship
According to several media reports, Kennedy has been offered the ambassadorship. CNN reported that Kennedy is being vetted for the position. She would replace current Ambassador John Roos, who has held the post since 2009.
The Washington Post reported in February that the departure of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton helped pave the way for Kennedy. Clinton and Kennedy reportedly had a strained relationship after Kennedy endorsed Obama over the former New York senator in 2008.
