I agree–scotch is not a bad plan B. Was Bennett really comparing Obama at all favorably to Reagan? That would be newsworthly.

Ari, I think EMK’s endorsement is going to be huge, if only because it’s NOT going to Clinton, as later news reports have it. The Senator (as those of us who have lived in Massachusetts know him) has done at least as much if not more for the liberal cause over the past 47 years than either of his brothers ever did–no fault of their own, of course, but quite frankly, an endorsement from a living Senator Kennedy on his own behalf would means a great deal more to me than an endorsement from a child of the former president. He (EMK) is the real deal.

That’s one right-wing loony going on about another. Now Carolyn Kennedy compares Obama to Kennedy. So what do those two have in common: they are both highly over-rated as presidents and unnecessarily revered by their respective sides. There are news reports that Ted is going to back Obama. IF so, there will be blood. All this K stuff makes me wonder if instead of “where’s the beef?” we should be asking, “where’s the scotch?”

I don’t think Caroline’s endorsement means much. But Teddy’s matters for many skeptical liberals. Whether it should nor not is another issue.

The Princess Royal of the Kennedy clan, who has herself accomplished nothing in life except being born to wealth and privilege, has draped her father’s moth-eaten cloak on Barack Obama, who, in her father’s White House, would have been a footman or cook. Say what you will about Obama, he got there himself without the benefit of a rich daddy or corrupt political machine. He may be more unprepared to be president and more disastrous for this country than was JFK, but we hope, at least, that he will be impervious to “love notes” from middle-aged political camp followers who are still trying to be influential without ever being relevant.

Yes, I totally agree on this. When Teddy weighs in on someone, I think it will matter. Till then – less so.
