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 Robert F. Kennedy Jr. 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?
