  •  There is no way to way to compare exactly (0+ / 0-)

    but according to Google searches there are about twice as many online references to Robert/Bobby Kennedy than Ted/Teddy Kennedy.

    It's hard to imagine how a person could come to know who Teddy is without also knowing who Bobby is.

    Mr. Gorbachev, establish an Electoral College!

    •  Really? (0+ / 0-)

      Ask any person born since Bobby's assassination that same question, especially anyone born after 1980. They'd know Teddy on TV, as a Senator, as a presidential candidate, when he helped negotiate with the Bush administration, when he endorsed Obama, his work on healthcare, etc.

      In modern American history classes, Teddy is taught, I dare say Bobby isn't unless to mention his assassination.
