Presidential daughters for Obama

It is perhaps ironic that the daughter of Richard Nixon, the granddaughter-in-law of Dwight Eisenhower (okay, same person), and the daughter of Barry Goldwater have all endorsed Barack Obama, but I am not willing to grant that it is significant.  This even goes for Caroline Kennedy — minus the irony.  These people are luminaries, because of their names, but I have no inkling whatsoever as to their policy credibility (unlike, say, Colin Powell).

Basically, I have little confidence in the dictum, “Like former Republican presidential candidate father, like newly liberal Obama supporter daughter.”
