Here's some news on the Kennedy family front.
Remember when we had a political dynasty that actually inspired people?
Okay, I was too young for that, too. Was not born on time to see JFK or RFK, and grew up remembering that Ted Kennedy was a pretty cool force for resistance in Congress, although he also happened to be mocked fairly frequently on Saturday Night Live, as well.
Other than that, there might have been a member of the Kennedy family also in politics here or there, but no other major, national figures.
Well, that might be about to change.
None other than JFK's own daughter, Caroline Kennedy, will apparently be running for Congress!
Admittedly, I am not a big fan of political dynasties. Not a fan of the Clintons, and definitely not a fan of the Bushes. Not a fan of the idea of Michele Obama running in 2020. To me, they all had their time, and they each proved to be corporate sellouts. We do not need more of that kind of politics, as we have plenty of it already.
However, this seems a welcome bit of news, as the Kennedys seem to have more or less retained their dignity and integrity throughout. That does not mean that I always agree with everything that they say or do, but it does mean that I respect them in general, and can appreciate the bulk of their political arguments and decisions.
So, I took this as a bit of welcome news. Take a look, and see if you do, too:
