The Kennedys: A House Divided in `08 Race

28 Jan

It’s Kennedy Envy on the Campaign Trail

The Hillary Clinton camp didn’t waste any time trying to blunt the effect of Barack Obama’s big Kennedy endorsements. Caroline Kennedy endorsed Obama in a New York Times piece Sunday. And Teddy Kennedy will be endorsing Obama on Monday.

The Clinton campaign hurried out a statement at midafternoon Sunday reminding everybody they’ve got some Kennedys too.

Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, Bobby Kennedy’s daughter, has endorsed Hillary: “I respect Caroline and Teddy’s decision but I have made a different choice . . . She shares so many of the concerns of my father.” And Ms. Townsend noted that her siblings — brother Bobby and sister Kerry — are also supporting Hillary Clinton.

So for those keeping score at home, it’s JFK’s daughter and brother for Barack. Bobby Kennedy’s kids for Hillary. Got that?

    It is wonderful that Caroline, Teddy and now Patrick Kennedy have all come out for Obama. I saw Teddy’s speech today and it was AMAZING!!! Haven’t heard him so impassioned in years!
