The second of two political notables to die in the past day (Eleanor Mondale, and now a Kennedy daughter).

You’ll get ragged on because its already been posted. Mondale’s daughter also died today, both were 51. Way to young. Very sad for both families. No parent should out live their child.

Politics aside, 51 is too young to pass.

Prayers for the family.

“She’s with Dad”? I have no idea if Ted was saved or not but his actions indicate otherwise. In that case, I hope that she is not “with Dad.”

Oh, I'm not too sure about that. It depends on the child. Ted Bundy's mom, for example, should definitely have outlived Ted.

The Kennedy daughter died yesterday, Mondale's daughter today.

The title implies that Teddy had more than one daughter. She was his only legitimate daughter. I don't know if any of his affairs produced any other daughters.

Well look at the bright side; If she’d been forced to use Obamacare, she would have died a lot sooner.

She died at a health club? From lung cancer??

Did she overdo it on a treadmill?? Did it run out of control and wind her beyond recovery?

Such is the state of modern “journalism”...

l Let's put it this way: I don't trip all over myself trying to prove just how compassionate a conservative I am. I have no particular use for the Kennedys or the Mondales. They're despicable people, responsible for much evil in the world. Their support for abortion alone is enough to remove them from my sympathies.

Perhaps this was more like a Sanitarium than a Health Club as we think of them today.

Either way, it’s strange she didn’t die at home with family, if this was due to a long illness.

I would think the Kennedy family would a more desirable way to go.

In death, almost everyone gets 72 hours from me.

Yes, the Kennedy’s were trash, but consideration of those who have recently died, reflects on the person extending it, not the person who died.

If we’re talking about Hitler, Charles Manson, Ted Bundy..., I’ll sign on to being glad and expressing it on day one. If it’s someone else, particularly an extended family member of someone who was a lout, I’m not interested in showing disrespect for them the very day they die.

I remember when Nixon died. The left crawled out of the woodwork to disparage the man the moment he passed on. When Clinton dies, they’ll mourn him like he was a Winston Churchill.

I’ll give him 72 hours, and start posting what a worthless POS he was. Kids should know, because our Leftist media and history books will never cover it.

Patrick Kennedy said she died at her regular health club from a heart attack. Not unusual; chemotherapy can damage the heart. My wife has mild cardiomyopathy because of it, but does well will medication. She’s 44 but she’ll never run a 5k again (and she used to.)

Okay, that makes sense. The original COD that I saw didn’t seem to indicate that. Perhaps I didn’t read far enough in.

Sorry your wife has had some problems, but I am glad to hear she’s doing well with medication.

All the best to the both of you.

Her children are pretty young, 17 and 15. In fact the older child will turn 17 on Monday.

I’m 53 and I find this all quite sad. At least my own child is all grown up now.

No parent should out live their child.
I am sure Mr. and Mrs. Kopechne would agree.

My first thoughts exactly.

It is a sad and unfortunate event that this woman died so young; I would not wish that on anyone. But she did, however, outlive Mary Jo Kopechne by nearly a quarter century, or 23 years.

Mary Jo Kopechne died in 1969--42 years ago. It was right about the time of the first moon landing. Nixon had invited Teddy to be present at Cape Canaveral for the occasion of the launch but he turned down the invitation--if he had gone there he wouldn't have been at the party in Chappaquiddick.

Or did you mean that Kara's lifespan was 23 years longer than Mary Jo's?

It's curious how this news report calls her Kara Kennedy and a different story has her as Kara Kennedy Allen (she had two children by her former husband). It's as if the Kennedy name was royalty and counts more than any other surname.
