What’s even more remarkable in that story about congressboy’s seat in Rhode Island is this:
Whatever the outcome of the race, the election will mark the end of an era in American politics that dates back to 1946 when John F. Kennedy won a House seat in Massachusetts. Each year since then, at least one member of the Kennedy family has been in the White House, the U.S. House, or the U.S. Senate.
For the first time in generations, we will have a Kennedy-free federal government. It’s long overdue.
