All in the Family? Kennedy's Senate Succession

Who will fill the Senate seat held by the Lion?

Friday, August 28, 2009

Will Ted Kennedy's Senate seat be filled by another Kennedy? Both Joe, Robert Kennedy's son, and Vicki, Ted's wife, have been mentioned as possible successors, but how well would they fare in a special election? We ask longtime Boston journalist Christopher Lydon. He's a former public radio host who ran for mayor of Boston in the early 1990's.
