Ted Kennedy (Surprise!) Doesn't Think Mitt Romney Is The Right Candidate!

Ted Kennedy has commented on Mitt Romney's presidential prospects. He doesn't think much of them, of course, but Teddy's statements quoted in the Boston Globe seem fairly tame:

"The real kind of question and challenge is whether he has the vision and
the ability to mobilize both his party and the country in terms of national
leadership,'' Kennedy said. "I think that's the big question. . . .

"It will now be the question as to whether the governor has the kind of
ability to do it,'' Kennedy said. "It's a very high, fast track when you
run for president. We just have to sort of wait and see.''

Maybe the Dems' "Romney strategy" will be to emphasize Mitt's relative lack of high-leel experience. If the global war on terror is still a hot issue in 2008, that handful of mud might actually stick.

UPDATE: Commenter Mark rightly notes that Ted Kennedy's opposition is actually a sign that Mitt must be a decent GOP candidate.

If Ted Kennedy does not like him, he must be worthy of consideration.

Hardly suprising considering Ted "Dude, Where's My Scotch?" Kennedy thinks the Three Wise Men are Jim Beam, Johnny Walker, and Jack Daniels.

Well, the real question is how is Mitt Romney going to justify moving back to Michigan since he has not lived there since he was 18? There have been several Romney campaign leaks stating that the Massachusetts governor is moving back to Michigan after he leaves the corner office in Boston. Thus, he can avoid the Massachusetts liberal title. Is this another classic Romney flip-flop—like his position on abortion or gay marriage-- or a brilliant Mike Murphy move? Only time will tell.
