          Kennedy's who have exemplified the spirit of public service, of what you can do for your country and not demanding what your country can do for you.  Joe Kennedy was a crook, and then he was a statesman.  All families have some shady pasts, and in their day, it maybe wasn't so shady, but what was accepted.

          This does not mean there aren't families that are nothing but a cancer on our world.  The Bush clan really comes to mind as a great example of that.
