There Will Be Kennedy

With Caroline Kennedy ahead in the media speculation that is ClintonSenateSeatStakes, here is how MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Morning Joe today (lamely) teased the lineup for her own afternoon show:

I’m heading to California to the Reagan Library for a big event out there but Nora O’Donnell will be here and one of the guests, she’ll have Kerry Kennedy who is, you know, of course, related to [pause, half-laugh] to… her cousin, Caroline Kennedy…

Brace yourself. Because another Kennedy cousin issued this forward-looking warning to the AP:

Robert Kennedy said his extended family would come out en masse for [Caroline Kennedy] if she does get the appointment and has to run for election in 2010.

“If she runs, you will see more Kennedys than you have ever seen in your life,” he said.
