A Kennedy For Senate?

After all the recent speculation about Vicky or Joe here, and Caroline in New York, there's been very little buzz about a Kennedy who really might be the next in the clan for the US Senate: Chris.

Christopher Kennedy, son of Robert and Ethel, is reportedly very likely to enter the race in Illinois, to replace presumed no-chance-in-hell incumbent Roland Burris in 2010.

Boston-born and BC-educated, Chris is president of a commercial realty company, active in a variety of community and business groups, and obviously has a potent combination of name recognition, political connections, and funding for a serious run.

That said, he could face backlash against perceptions of him trying to claim the seat on bloodline alone -- especially given the well-publicized Caroline fiasco.
