How long do ‘we’ console ‘ourselves’ with some portion of the toxic Kennedy Myth? His opposition to Vietnam War was always one critical comment, followed by an ignominious retreat, in the guise of ‘clarification’!
Mort Sahl had a great routine, using his blackboard, describing Bobby’s mercurial Politics: from Right-Wing Social Democrat to a Left-Wing version, to the Right-Wing version, or just his ‘hover’ over the whole, that disguised his political opportunism. Or should it be characterized as an ambition, unrelated to an actual ability to govern, if such exists?
In ’68 Wallace got 9 million votes, some of these voters were former Bobby supporters : does that astound?
I say this with all due respect, to what you have stood for over the years!
