MSNBC’s First Read is reporting (with the outstanding title of “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventures”) that Former President Clinton is now taking swipes at Ted Kennedy over No Child Left Behind, calling it a “train wreck.” Though Bill gets points for some fine descriptive work, someone should probably tell him that Hillary voted for No Child Left Behind. This attempt to throw Ted Kennedy under the bus is either a testament to the vindictiveness of the Clintons or evidence of how worried they are about the impact of the senator’s endorsement of Obama earlier this week. The Clinton campaign also rolled out a commercial today featuring RFK Jr., who attempts to blunt Caroline Kennedy’s passing of JFK’s torch to Obama by passing Bobby’s torch to Hillary. The only difference is, people have been comparing Obama to John F. Kennedy for years. But Hillary as Bobby? It’s a reach.
The Clintons and the Kennedys vs. the Kennedys
