he should have married Chelsea Clinton, that would have produced a policital lock for their party for 30-40 years. They could be the first Husband and Wife to be president at the same time....oops, I forgot Hillary already did that.

Are there no other capable people to run for political office in MA?

Stop letting this family run the State. Elect GOOD democrats, not just someone who has the Kennedy moniker.

Wake up! MA residents, surely there are other qualified democrats who can lead.

You're all brainwashed.

And remember old Teddy wanted windmills, BUT NOT IN HIS BACKYARD

And remember old Teddy failed to contact the police after he reached the shore to let them KNOW there was an accident and a young woman was trapped in the back of the car! BUT, old Teddy did have the brains to call his lawyer and cousin and WAIT to the following morning to contact the police.

THIS IS WHAT THE KENNEDYS GIVE YOU.

Always remember MaryJo!

Have you looked on the bottom of Chappaquiddick Sound? A lot of them wind up there. Also try the drunk tanks, local morgue and your wife's bedroom closet.(You could also follow the trail of dead & raped women they leave behind.)

That's a pretty good way to start looking for a Kennedy you've been missing.

True! It's the kind of thinking that third-world dictators use to make themselves "President-for-Life" of whatever sh*t hole they happen to be in charge of. Yep, that's what the liberals want: a family of crooks, liars, murderers and drunks to rule over us FOREVER with their offices passed down via heredity.

Well since Chelsea could only stay married for 6 months after a 4 million dollar wedding, it would take Kennedy money for her to stay longer this time.

When they asked uncle Teddy if he was going to run for the presidency years ago he replied--"I'll drive off that bridge when I come to it!"

This article has been nominated to be checked for its neutrality. Discussion of this nomination can be found on the talk page.(February 2012)

Chicago-style politics is a byword used to designate a set of characteristics associated to the less commendable aspects of the recent political history of the American city of Chicago, Illinois,(i.e., corruption, patronage, nepotism, authoritarianism) which is often cited as an example of blatant corruption.[1] A study conducted by the University of Illinois has found that since 1972 three [Illinois?] governors before Governor Blagojevich, and a total of 1,000 [Chicago?] public officials and businessmen have been convicted of public corruption since 1970.[2]

The administration of the city under mayor Richard J. Daley is believed to incarnate this style at its worst, several of Daley's subordinates being jailed for corruption. However the most significant systemic trait of Daley's Administration, regarding Chicago-style politics, was its extended reliance on a heavy political machine, the so called Chicago Machine, with all its venal implications,[3][4] which not only served to seize the power but also to exert control and to perpetuate political hegemony. Sociologists have demonstrated that this kind of political organization antedates Daley's mandate and can be traced as far back as 1928[5], being in fact a long political habitus, whose roots and scope go well beyond the formal political party sphere and affect the social structures at community levels.[6]

In more recent times the successive cases of Governors, George Ryan and Rod Blagojevich, convicted in 2006 and 2010 respectively, have attracted worldwide media attention to the City's political ethos.[7][8][9] During the Ryan's scandals a political science professor at the University of Illinois at Springfield told The New York Times: "George Ryan is quintessential Illinois politics: power-oriented, jobs-winning, control kind of politics," "This is not a bad person corrupting a good system. He is clearly a product of what is a very broad political culture here".[10] Ironically Blagojevich, Ryan's successor, and his 2002 campaign focused on the theme of "ending business as usual" in state government.[11] Ending corruption was in fact the central issue of that election: a poll showed that 9 in 10 voters said corruption was an important factor in electing a new governor.[12] Following his electoral victory, the new elected governor and later-to-be convicted Blagojevich, told the media: "Tonight, ladies and gentlemen, Illinois has voted for change.”[13]

In recent years the term has been employed by conservative Republican politicians and pundits to characterize a supposedly offensive “tough, take-no-prisoners approach to politics”.[14] thus the Speaker of the House, John Boehner (R-Ohio) during a weekly press briefing, stated that: "Chicago-style politics is shutting the American people out and demonizing their opponents".[15]. However, other pundits take issue with this narrow definition of Chicago-style politics. Jacob Weisberg of Slate has accused conservatives of not having a proper historical understanding of Chicago-style politics even while attempting to use it for their own partisan advantage.[16]

That's the motto in Cal. Ill. Mass. and I'm thinking a couple other states. Our elections are manipulated by the press and that's why we get so many defective reps. There's just too much money involved. The regular guy will always get screwed with this system. But both parties still try to say they want the middle class to thrive. That's the biggest lie in politics.
