And I am ok with that! Joe P. Kennedy III just got elected to Congress to replace Rep. Barney Frank so needless to say, if another Kennedy runs for office in Massachusetts, more Kennedys!
Look, as much as the Kennedy clan has gone through, whether it be JFK, JFK Jr, or any other Kennedy, at least they've been fighters.
And now one of the sons of the Lion of the U.S. Senate is planning on running. No, not Patrick Kennedy as he's based in Rhode Island.
It's Edward Kennedy Jr. Just think of this, what better way to replace John Kerry than with a Kennedy? Senator John Kerry is just about a Kennedy, idolized and even met John F. Kennedy long ago. Hell, Kerry is close friends with Ah-nold Schwarzenegger, who divorced from Maria Shriver recently who also is also from the Kennedy clan.
Edward M. Kennedy Jr. is giving serious consideration to running for the US Senate seat that John F. Kerry will vacate if he is confirmed as secretary of state, according to his brother, former US representative Patrick Kennedy.Let me be clear in saying that I really do not know a thing about Ted Kennedy Jr. I know Patrick Kennedy has been a Congressman for many years in Rhode Island and was close with Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. when he was in rehab.
The former Rhode Island congressman said that leading Democrats, including Senator Charles Schumer of New York, have asked his brother to look at launching a campaign to replace Kerry and hold the seat for Democrats.
“It’s not something he took lightly when he was approached about running,’’ Patrick Kennedy said in a phone interview Saturday night. “He got the message that he should seriously look at it.’’
The former congressman said his brother, who lives in Connecticut but owns a house at the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port, has reached out to family members, friends, and some prominent Democrats, including Kerry, as he ponders whether to plunge into the political life that has been so much part his family’s legacy.
However, providing TKJ does run for the U.S. Senate, is not a fluke and is a real formidable candidate aside from just the Kennedy name, the race is officially over. Scott Brown's future is kaput, at least for now.
Just think of the coolness of having two fighters in the U.S. Senate representing Massachusetts:
And Ted Kennedy Jr.
I mean, TKJ does have fighting power. He even sounds a lot like his father, whom we all miss.
Here's TKJ on his father:
