Conan O'Brien Keeps the Kennedy Flame Burning

Well, not O'Brien himself, but his lookalike Joseph Kennedy III, running for the seat vacated by Barney Frank. Eleanor Clift delivers a belated Valentine to young Kennedy here-she clearly finds it tragic that the string of Kennedys in Congress, originating in 1947, was broken when Patrick Kennedy stepped down in 2010. She further finds it tragic that the state's Congressional delegation is no longer all Democrat, after (her words) Scott Brown won 'Ted Kennedy's seat' earlier in 2010.

Wasn't David Gergen referring to 'Ted Kennedy's seat' in a debate one of the reasons Brown was able to win in the first place?

Silver lining of this tale: Barney Frank will be gone.
