Could someone please tell Ted Kennedy that the Senate is no family's preserve?
Why not just go the whole nine yards and convert it into a peerage? They’ve held the seat for 55 years, except for a brief period in the early 60s when JFK’s college roommate held it. Give it to Ted’s wife, then Caroline can have it after she establishes Massachusetts residency, and then Patches will get it provided he doesn’t crash any more cars in the meantime. Although, of course, that never hurt Teddy, did it?
Haven't seen anyone come out in favor of it. Some say Obama, who's been campaigning against the Clinton's dynastic approach to the presidency, should recommend to Kennedy that someone else take the spot.
