Skip to comments.Kennedy Widow Urged to Run Against Scott Brown
Posted on 08/14/2010 8:52:38 PM PDT by markomalley
The widow of the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy is being urged by prominent Democrats to run for the seat currently held by Republican Sen. Scott Brown.
They believe that Victoria Reggie Kennedy has the best chance of any candidate to win the seat back in 2012, according to a report in The Washington Post.
Though she has seemed to bat down the idea, Kennedy has been in some ways acting the part of a candidate. She has raised her public profile by campaigning for other politicians and appearing at events across the country.

Before or after the family evicts her from her home? lol
That’s RICH!!!! HA-HA-HA-HA-blub,blub,blubbbbbbb...uf.
Yes Miss Vickie-—just tell the folks that it’s not Scott Browns seat but ‘the peoples seat’-—to be safely back under Kennedy control once again!
It would be a tough race, there wouldn’t be many differences to exploit.
True...the only difference is she’d be honest about it.
Of course, qualifications have nothing to do with representing the populace in the Senate. It’s all about influence and the elitist mentality, don’t you know.

What’s with this family dynasty thingie? Don’t the CommieCrates have a competent candidate to offer? If not, they should get into another line of work! JMHO
Scott is prettier.
Why not just put old dead Ted himself back in the seat. Aw heck, dead folks get to vote all the time as democrats.
Sure seems amazing though——every dead voter goes for those dems!
No conservative money to the next campaign for brown.Just might lose.
Shoot, she’s probably more conservative.
Has anyone heard her speak? Is she as, um, you know, articulate as, you know, Caroline Kennedy? /s
The left are at home with monarchies, dynasties, etc. What they fear the most are individuals with rights who needn't beg permission from some elitist to exercise a right.
This social construct is very old and is repleat with favoritism. If you 'know' somebody, for example, you can drown a young girl and become Senator someday.
America rejected this social arrangement at it's founding but somehow, it has crept back in. And with it went the rule of law- laws only apply to the commoner, not the elite.
Skip-out on taxes and you or I go to jail-- do it as head of the House committee that writes tax law and you get a slap on the wrist with similarly corrupt dignitaries attending your birthday party. Or, an appointment to head the Treasury Dept.
By encouraging spouses to fill seats vacated by their deceased loved ones suggests the seat was neither particularly demanding of skill or of much importance to begin with, and, that ideological continuity has greater merit. Term limits may not be the answer but it's a start.
You’d think in a state where more than 90% of the elected officials are Democrats that they could do better than this...
Gotta keep that “royalty” going. Snark, snark.
If I recall correctly, her father was a Democrat judge from Louisiana who was in jail when she married the Swimmer. So she’s got the perfect pedigree for both the Democrat party and the Kennedy family.
I can’t wait to see the political ads with her and Splash and the other family members and dogs.
The Massachusetts version of North Korea’s “planation communism” continues to churn out heirs and pretenders to the throne of Camelot.
that’s PLANTATION, Jack.
Speaking of dynasties, I am in Chicago and I took the architecture boat tour this evening. There is this HUGE building in the city called the Merchandise Mart. It was originally built by Marshall Field. It is so large that until recently it had its own zip code. It was purchased by Joe Kennedy many years ago for a fraction of what it cost to build when the real estate in Chicago declined considerably. The Kennedys owned it until 1990, I think.
Means nothing - I just thought it was interesting.
Outside of crawling in the fart sack with Red Ted, what are her qualifications?
Save her for 1016. She is probably more qualified than Barack was in 2008.
Not upholding the U.S Constitution or anything like that,he emphasized his family's ideas about how things should be and thanked people for supporting his family's ideas. That's the way I understood it when I saw it. He is my “representative” (lots of laughs and tears).
In case anybody doesn’t know,Patrick is the son of the late Senator Edward “Ted” Kennedy.
I agree with what you said except for the term limits support.
My 2 cents is that if term limits are instituted and people vote as always they have,the term limits won’t make a difference because those voted in will be the same as those voted out. Term limits will just put in new faces who have the same beliefs in office.
I think term limits come from the ballot box. Things will change when enough people vote for a real difference in governance.
For 1016 she will need Mr. Peabody, Sherman and their Wayback machine. :)
“Scott Brown is so much preferable.
He is? Doesn’t he vote with the Liberal Democrats just as Kennedy did?
Well,unless I’m sadly mistaken,he hasn’t always voted along with the extreme Liberal Democrats. Further,he gives the Repubbies one more number in the Senate ranks. Do you think it would be preferable to have Ted Kennedy’s widow in that seat?
thanx, I didn’t know that
“Urged by prominent Democrats” the mob members must be getting nervous.
Did you see this?
“Well,unless Im sadly mistaken,he hasnt always voted along with the extreme Liberal Democrats. Further,he gives the Repubbies one more number in the Senate ranks. Do you think it would be preferable to have Ted Kennedys widow in that seat?
Not preferable but not much worse, either.
If Mrs. Kennedy didn’t run when the seat was vacant, there’s no reason to believe that she’d run in 2012.
Scott Brown is no conservative but he's conservative compared to Kennedy.
There you go again. Acting like a humorless Republican hack.
Oh, yea, you were using humor. First, you try to fool yourself and then you try to fool us. Tom, do something useful. You hang out here waiting for an opportunity to take a jab at anything Republican. You do it trying to gin up support for YOUR little political party. Tom, give it up. Your party will never go anywhere. I have a simple truth for you—if you want to achieve anything politically, it must be done in either the Republican party of the Democrat party. Take your choice or go take up some other endeavor because until you realize this truth, you’re wasting your time, as well as that of others.
Frankly, old friend, you’re now a poster child for what the formerly grand old party has become. Unprincipled. Self-aggrandizing. Incessantly insulting to conservatives and conservatism. No thanks. Life is way too short.
Interesting, yet the Presidency is limited. Wonder what 16-20 years of a conservative prez (real) could do to turn this country back toward it's charter? We've seen what lib-conrolled congress has gotten us ('cept for the "Contract with America" congress- first time in fourty years to go republican).
I do agree that the people should get the government they vote for but a little help from the media in vetting candidates would be nice. For example, my choice for 2012 has been mercilessly attacked by the media (and one 'gap-toothed' late night comedian )- a practice, if applied to a particular other candidate, would have produced howls of racism. I mean, they could have at least made fun of his ears if not his thin resume'. (Bankrupting these media centers would go a long way toward facillitating a national course correction).
Smells a little desperate of them to be begging her to run 2 years before the election.
