do you think kennedy will attempt to appoint a successor from his
family, or do you think he'll stay out of the race to succeed him?
I wrote about these rumors a few weeks ago. My best guess right now is that it depends on who in the family wants it. If his wife wants it, as is much rumored, he'd probably try to arrange that by force. Otherwise, I'd say Ted would support but not enforce. For instance, if Joe wants it -- which my guess is he doesn't -- I don't think Ted will try to force everyone else to stay on the sidelines for him.
