Caroline Kennedy talked politics in an interview on CBS This Morning with Charlie Rose and Norah O'Donnell.
O'Donnell asked Kennedy, 54, who will address the convention tonight - along with stars expected to include Eva Longoria, James Taylor and Marc Anthony - what she thinks of Mitt Romney.
"I don't think that much about Mitt Romney," she said with a laugh. "I think about President Obama. I really do."
And before she exited the chat, Charlie Rose asked, "Are you listening to any Taylor Swift songs these days?" He was fishing for a clue as to the family's feelings about Swift's romance with Conor Kennedy. (Caroline and Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Conor's dad, are cousins.)
Her reply, "Romeo. Romeo, when I think about Mitt Romney, only."
We assume she meant Swift's hit, Love Song, which includes the word Romeo several times. But we also have to assume that Kennedy is worrying about bigger issues than titles to Swift songs.
We were both young when I first saw you
I close my eyes
And the flashback starts
I'm standing there
On a balcony in summer air
See the lights
See the party, the ball gowns
I see you make your way through the crowd
And say hello, little did I know
That you were Romeo, you were throwing pebbles
And my daddy said stay away from Juliet
And I was crying on the staircase
Begging you please don't go, and I said
Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone
I'll be waiting all there's left to do is run
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess
It's a love story baby just say yes
Maybe Rose should have just flat-out asked about Swift. That's what TMZ did when its camera crew ran into Rep. Patrick Kennedy (Ted Kennedy's son) in Charlotte earlier this week.
"We love Taylor Swift ... she's been a great friend and we're happy for Conor," he said, adding, "If she wants to be in the family, she's already a part of it."
