Biden picks Vicki Kennedy as Austria ambassador

Source: Axios

President Biden is nominating Victoria Reggie Kennedy, the widow of Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass), to be his ambassador to Austria.

By selecting Kennedy, Biden is again demonstrating his loyalty to longtime friends, as he fills out his political ambassadorship with an assortment of old friends, longtime aides and pure political donors.

Biden also plans to nominate Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of slain U.S. President John F. Kennedy and niece of Edward Kennedy, as his envoy to Australia, Axios has reported. She previously served as President Obama's ambassador to Japan.

Flashback: Biden, who shares the Kennedy family's Irish Catholic heritage, delivered a eulogy in 2009 for Ted, with whom he served in the Senate for 36 years.
