Caroline Kennedy may be US envoy to Japan

US President Barack Obama is leaning toward picking Caroline Kennedy to be the next US ambassador to Japan, a source familiar with the process said on Monday.

The 55-year-old daughter of assassinated former president John Kennedy would be the first female US ambassador to Japan.

She was one of the earliest backers of Obama in his first presidential campaign in 2008, and her endorsement was significant in helping him defeat then-US senator Hillary Clinton in the Democratic presidential primary that year.
