Kennedy Backs Vance, Citing ‘Pragmatism and Idealism’

At a fund-raiser last night on the Upper East Side, Caroline Kennedy said she’s backing Cy Vance for Manhattan district attorney because he combines “pragmatism and idealism.”
In fact, she said it twice.
According to a transcript and video of the event sent by the campaign, Kennedy said:
“Cy is the most experienced candidate in the race, and he has the support of those who best understand what is needed in our next DA. He has served as an outstanding prosecutor, criminal defense lawyer, commissioner for sentencing reform and community leader. But perhaps most importantly, through his long career, he has maintained the ability to combine pragmatism and idealism to achieve justice.
