Is Obama The Next JFK?

Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of former president John Kennedy seems to think so.

This NYT's article provides the endorsement for Obama. Ramesh Ponnuru, a senior editor at NRO refers to it as "Caroline Kennedy's Political Romanticism." Ponnuru's erudite statement, "Caroline says that Obama could be a president like her father. I assume that means that he'll be overrated, not that he'll bring us to the brink of nuclear war" This may not be the only reason for concern. Kennedy was a very popular president and had more balls than the entire democratic congress possesses. He did have some flaws. He was human. As Vonnegut was oft fond of saying, "So it goes."

But it could be worse!!!
