Kennedy un-supports Kerry

By Michael J.W. Stickings

The Boston Globe is reporting that "Senator Edward M. Kennedy [has] dropped his public commitment to support Senator John F. Kerry in a 2008 presidential race, saying that he won't wait 'indefinitely' for Kerry to declare his intentions while the Democratic primary field takes shape." He "still might support Kerry if Kerry decides to run," and will in fact do so if that decision is made "in the near term," but in an interview with the Globe he "offered strong praise" for Clinton and Obama.

I respect Kennedy's consistently loyal support for Kerry, but maybe he just wants to back a winner.
