1. She's not that good of a public speaker unless she has been working on it

I remember they were trying to get her to run for the senate in New York and she did not come off well. Maybe being ambassador in Japan helped her speaking skills.

3. What about one of her cousins?

Chris-(RFK's son) running for Governor of IL in 2018.
Edward jr.(Edward's son) thinking about running for Governor of CT in 2018.

10. Agreed...she was embarrassingly awkward when being

interviewed in the past, and I really wanted to like her.

2. Now I would love to see her...

But got slammed a lot here on du for suggesting it...of course I did happen to mention her lineage which caused a little negative uproar. It's all good, that's what discussions are for right?

I'm liking Joe III myself, not sure if our shining star has presented themselves yet tho...too early to tell...need to live that long.

4. 60th aniversary

please, we ain't that old.

I know she's a very intelligent woman but she seems very private and perhaps shy.

5. There's always a chance.

I'd say in this instance, the chances are pretty slim.

6. Are you looking for Ms or Mr. Congeniality, a rock star, legacy hire.......?




What do you think the position of president of the US requires?

16. I like Joe III but any chance he will defer to Elizabeth Warren.

Warren seeks the Democratic nomination for President, wins both the primary and the General Election. Joe III runs for the MA US Senate Seat previously held by his grand uncles JFK and Ted in the 2021 special election.
Warren seeks the Democratic nomination for President, wins the primary but loses the general election. Joe III runs for the other MA US Senate seat in 2020 (assuming Markey retires) then runs for President in 2024.
Warren seeks the Democratic nomination for President but loses the primary. Whoever wins the Democratic nominee for President in 2020 decides to select Joe III as the VP runningmate. Joe III runs for President in 2024 if Trump is re-elected or 2028 if Trump is defeated.
Warren decides not to run in 2020. Joe III decides to run for President in 2020 after 7 to 8 years service in the US House of Representative.

8. spamming the board with random 2020 picks again

Obviously you have never seen her give a public address. She is painfully shy and hates to make speeches as she will repeat before and after she speaks.

She only made a few speeches for Obama because of her deep respect for him.

Any discussion beyond 2018 House and Senate races is pointless.

Ms. Kennedy has made it crystal clear she has zero interest in elected office.

"Or one of her cousins?" How is this considered an informed sentence.

He isn't advocating for a candidate but throwing it names almost at random

12. The bigger issue is winning 2018, not 2020.

If you want to stop Trump, you need to surround him with a Democratic congress.

21. I agree but the maximum number of seats Democrats could gain in the US Senate is 2

AZ and NV, Democrats need to gain 3 seats in the US Senate. Regarding the US House, it would take Democrats winning GA-6 in

14. She's still hasn't quite lived down openly asking to be appointed to HRC's Senate seat in '09.

17. She's an automatic "NO WAY" to the crowd here that considers "Dynasties"

to be as unwanted in politics as shoulder pads.

That includes any Clinton.

19. And guarantee a permanent GOP majority? Hell no.

The GOP hates the Kennedys as much as they hate the Clintons and they will work to annihilate her in the general election. We need another Obama or Sanders to run.

20. She will primary Gillibrand senate seat in 2018, in a downstate

upstate feud.

Gillibrand will probably not run for the Senate 2018 if she decides to run for the ticket in 2020.

The GOP is planning for John Faso to also run for the senate seat in 2018.

She's more of an introverted intellect
