Sen. Ted Kennedy says, Don't write-off John Kerry or Der Mittenfuhrer
BOSTON -- Senator Edward Kennedy is weighing in on potential presidential candidates from Massachusetts.

The Bay State Democrat appeared this morning on NBC's "Meet The Press."

Kennedy shrugged off polls showing Senator John Kerry in the single digits -- badly trailing likely candidates Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama.

Kennedy said Kerry faced an "uphill battle" before the 2004 campaign for the Democratic nomination, which Kerry won.

Kennedy said he'll endorse Kerry if he opts to run again.

On the Republican side, Kennedy said former Governor Mitt Romney is a strong candidate. "I wouldn't underestimate Mitt," he said.

1. Multiple Choice Romney
I can see GOP primary ads against him: "He was for abortion before he was against it"

2. Hmmm, Interesting statement by a veteran politician. So, Mitt's being "postitioned" and Hagel's
positioning himself.

Brownback and Guilliani on each end of their spectrum.

And, McCain, all on his lonesome.

4. Good advice.
I wouldn't underestimate either of them. Sen Kerry, because he's highly qualified, and Mittens because the Repubs don't have much else.

5. Did you see the glint in his eyes?
He knows that romney is a lightweight and a fool. He changes like the wind. For stem cells against stem cells. Abortion, Gays you name it. He is a big jerk. We never had a worse governor. Jane Swift who got elbowed out of the running by him is a prime example of his disdain for women. His wife loved Utah and enjoyed the climate and living there but he wanted to run for Governor so he made her move. What a slug. Her MS was better in Utah.

6. Kennedy's people know how Romney operates. I'm guessing
that Mitt is more formidable than his old man, George in '68. But when you take on Ted Kennedy in Massachusetts, you usually get whomped pretty good.

I think Kennedy's right on both counts. The only question mark for me is something the right-wing would have to answer: will they cast an ideological vote for a Mormon?

10. He's right. Don't underestimate Romney.
We need to keep a wary eye on Romney because he's poised to slip in there after McCain inevitably implodes.
