Caroline Kennedy will be the next Ambassador to Japan, Bloomberg News is reporting.

Bloomberg stated that the president has signed off on Kennedy’s nomination,  but that her vetting for the post had not been completed

The appointment is expected to be announced shortly.

Kennedy would follow in the footsteps of her grandfather, Joe Kennedy Senior who was Ambassador to Britain and her aunt, Jean Kennedy Smith who was Ambassador to Ireland.

The daughter of former president John F.Kennedy is a major supporter of President Obama.

She and her uncle Teddy Kennedy announced their support for him in the 2008 race against Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination at a key moment and it was seen as a turning point.

Kennedy, a lawyer and author, briefly ran for U.S. senator in New York but withdrew in 2009.
