Insider Fighting and Bickering Over Kennedy Endorsement of Obama


There were a couple of interesting articles this morning over on the CNN Political Press site. It seems that Ted Kennedy is getting some flack over his endorsement of Barack Obama over Hillary Clinton. According to one article the organization NOW, who have in the past overlooked Teddy’s philandering and misogynist practices as long as he voted for their agendas in the Senate, have strongly rebuked the Senator and called his action a betrayal of their group in a very public manner, for not endorsing Clinton. Oops too bad for Teddy, too bad its not likely to ride him off the taxpayers payroll. In another article, during the State of the Union address someone snapped a picture of an incident telling of the strain being put on the two candidates, when Barack Obama looks away from and give the cold shoulder to Hillary as she leans across in front of him to shake politically eager hands. Here’s the Beef ➡ Hillary looks as if she is enjoying the moment to the Political Max while Obama clearly has a stressed look on his face as Clinton invades his space and comfort zone.

CNN Links have a tendency to change addresses as they update articles. So the above links may fail, I will check and update when chance allows.

  3. I was going to blog about the NOW meltdown over Teddy’s endorsement of Obama over Hillary as one of my “An Embarrassment To Our Gender” posts, but decided you did as good a job as I would mocking NOWs idiocy.

    It’s beyond stupid—-feminists don’t care that Teddy is a serial womanizer and killed a girl, they just get upset about political endorsements. Sheesh!

  4. Poor teddy all he ever wanted is to be loved and admired like his brothers. Yet, other than the people who pull his puppet strings and their paid audience, he is seen as fat, drunk, stupid and someone who used his family money and political influence to escape prison. Here is one for you. teddy is an original flipflopper. Before Roe vs. Wade, teddy, a Roman Catholic, was a staunch opponent of abortion. But he needed those NOW votes so he switched to advocacy. It could be interesting if he plans on staying in office as it looks like he is going to have to kiss a lot of NOW booty if someone decides to challenge him.
