Ted Kennedy to Massachusetts: Take My Wife, Please

...as your new Senator.

Ted Kennedy has made clear to confidants that when his time is up, he wants his Senate seat to stay in the family - with his wife, Vicki.

Multiple sources in Massachusetts with close ties to the liberal lion say his wife of 16 years has long been his choice to continue carrying the family flame in the Senate. Kennedy won the seat in 1962; his brother John held it from 1953 to 1960.

"There's no question that he'd like Vicki to continue in his seat," said one Massachusetts Democrat with ties to the Camelot clan who spoke to Kennedy recently, before his health crisis.

"She's smart, and smart politically."

The 54-year-old Victoria Reggie Kennedy, a former hotshot Washington lawyer, is a Louisiana native and the daughter of a politically active judge.

People talk about the Kennedy dynasty as if that's a good thing, and without apparently considering the literal meaning of that word.

Of course this will work. They should just officially divide Massachusetts senators into the Senator from Massachusetts and the Senator from the Kennedy Compound.

Thanks to Michael K.
