    For more than half a century, the Kennedys were a force in U.S. politics. Their dominance began with John F. Kennedy’s 1960 presidential run and lasted until the death of Senator Edward M. Kennedy in 2009. The family’s return as a major political presence is not imminent, but it may not be that far off. A candidate for a Massachusetts seat in the U.S. House of Representatives is Joseph P. Kennedy III, a grandson of Robert F. Kennedy and a grandnephew of the president and the senator.

    A FAMILY battle is looming to succeed Edward Kennedy as senator and claim the leadership of America’s foremost political dynasty. While Kennedy, 77, the “liberal lion” of the Senate, is suffering from a brain tumour, jockeying has already begun between supporters of two possible candidates to replace him after his death. His wife Victoria, 55, a lawyer from a political family, is widely expected to run for his seat, which has a special place in family lore because it was held by JohnF Kennedy before he became president in 1961. However, former congressman Joe Kennedy, the eldest son of Robert...

    Some thoughts on the Kerry Candidacy ... If your name is TED KENNEDY and you know-because of your conduct at Chappaquiddick-the American people would never accept you as a presidential candidate; but you feel entitled to control of the nation,because it's your "family legacy"...watcha gonna do,Bad Boy ?? What you do is pick out a surrogate: someone you can run for office; someone who will be your puppet; someone whose strings you can pull,and pull,and pull....
