    Joe Kennedy 111, is the future of America . Hes someone millenniums will look up to. He will bring back, doing for your country . Not doing for Donald Trump!

    • Is this Kennedy the one who demanded that his wife acquiesce to an annulment of their marriage to allow him to remarry in the Catholic Church which would have branded their children as illegitimate?

    • Against medical marijuana, get real, Kennedy can wait!!

    Even though there’s a huge age gap Kennedy represents the establishment, whereas Merkley is the progressive so this is not the generational divide in the contemporary American political sense

      BRC: Yes, I thought the statement that Markey represented the establishment (when he is to the left of the national Dem. establishment) and a Massachusetts Kennedy didn’t was a little odd. Aren’t they both establishment in their own ways?

    • They keep trying to make it an AGE thing. It’s an IDEAS thing. That’s why Bernie is loved by young voters, and Biden and Buttigieg aren’t. IDEAS, not age.

    Ed Markey is a fine person, he’s always been a popular senator. Yes, he’s an older person but he has a good record. Not sure why they would primary him though.

  7. Massachusetts: High standard of living, educated populace, booming economy. Progressive leadership.

    Challenge the Democratic establishment… That’s the only way the Democratic Party will continue to grow an evolve.

    JUST BECAUSE HE’S A KENNEDY DOESN’T MEAN HE’LL WIN A RACE ESPECIALLY SINCE THE ONLY TIME I EVER HEAR HIS NAME IS AROUND ELECTION TIME AS IF EVERY KENNEDY IS SUPPOSED TO BE IN OFFICE BUT I DO HOPE THE REPUBLICANS ALL LOSE ASAP!!πŸ†—πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈβœŒπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  10. Instead of blabbing about their ages, why not tell us about their policy positions? Terrible, useless reporting.

    • Agreed!

      Mr. Kornacki pointed out that they are very similar progressives. No differences, at least so far. The panel made the point that the only significant difference is age, and Kennedy doesn’t have much else to run on at this point but his name, his age and, I would add, his looks and his voice. I think that none of that should matter, but would anyone deny that Richard Nixon would have become president on January 20, 1961 instead of 1969 had he and JFK switched faces, voices and wives in 1960? JFK won by a mere 113,000 votes nationally. The attractiveness of candidates, the way they present themselves is even more important today than in 1960. I suspect most people know that the policy promises are not going to become law anyway, with the division and polarization in the country and in Congress. As a result, they vote for the person whom they want to see on TV (though surely Trump is testing the patience of viewers for watching the same thing 24/7/365), whom they think would be amusing at a July 4th barbecue, and who sounds and looks more like a confident leader. Who knows? If Clinton had been able to deal with Trump’s stalking her on the debate stage and put him in his place (behind _his_ podium while she was speaking), she might be president today. Not being able to do that made her look weaker than he, didn’t it? All it would have taken is for 70,000 people in three states to notice that subconsciously and feel he would be a better leader to tip the election to him. Anyone believe Benjamin Harrison, Calvin Coolidge or Woodrow Wilson could get elected in 2020? That’s the reality of American politics today. Perhaps, if there is a primary campaign, we’ll find out that the two candidates actually don’t agree on everything except the optimal age for a senator. Maybe there will be policy differences. Let’s wait and see.

  11. what I wanna know is whether kennedy is running on corporate money or small donor money? it’s the only thing that matters here.

  12. JOE KENNEDY III IS “NOT” HIS GRANDFATHER ! SORRY! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

  13. 3 years ago a Psychics said one day a kennedy will return back to Political Power Joe Kennedy will run for President in the future

    Yes, he should n hopefully he will be the new president one day πŸ™‚

    • Is this Kennedy the one who demanded that his wife acquiesce to an annulment of their marriage to allow him to remarry in the Catholic Church which would have branded their children as illegitimate?

  17. Go Joe!! All the way to the Presidency in a few years!

  18. Kennedy wants to keep weed illegal. The guy is a corporate Democrat and wants to protect the status quo.

  19. Joe…I’m going to need for you to be EXTREMELY careful! Your family seems to be a favorite target amongst…How should i say this? The “Other” Guys πŸ™‚ #JFK

    When your family’s name recognition is your selling point, please just make money off it. Stay out of politics!
    I can’t vote for family dynasty. Also can’t think of any 2nd string family member who was a success. Bush2, Hillary, Paul…
    Many, many and even many more same family Kings and Presidents that were horrible and infamous in their incompetence.
    Say NO! to family dynasty in politics!!
