    Kennedys still a presence despite lack of torchbearer

    The Kennedys who can't stay married, drive, handle
    their liquor, drugs or govern, remain role models.........

    Perfectly alright that they're rich though. They're already paying their fair share, i bet, cause they're democrats.

    The last Democratic National Convention that gathered without a Kennedy in Congress was held in Chicago in 1944, only six weeks after the D-day invasion, at a time when typewriters, telephones, and teletypes were the gold standard of communication.

    Nearly seven decades later, the two-dozen family members who gather in Charlotte, N.C., will find themselves in that unfamiliar position again, without a standard-bearer of national clout since the 2009 death of Senator Edward M. Kennedy.

    Although some delegates might consign the family to a place of sentimental nostalgia, far removed from the Web-wired world of today’s politics, the Kennedys plan to be a presence at Charlotte. Political discussion will be fostered there through family-related forums, and Joseph P. Kennedy III, a candidate to succeed US Representative Barney Frank in Congress, will introduce a video tribute to the late senator.
