No more Mr. Nice Guy?


Brian McGory a Boston Globe columnist, reports that Sen. Ted Kennedy is furious over Republican strategist Charley Manning's column featured in the Globe earlier this month saying that, ''running against Kennedy is one of the best moves a woman or man who wants to be a major figure in Massachusetts politics can make."

Thge columnist likes writes that Teddy likes "nothing so much as his boat, dogs, and his family, quite possibly in that order."

What a man.What a family man. What a Democratic Senator.

Interviewed this week Kennedy warns his opponents about political campaigns that "no one should come to it lightly....Everything is fair game." 

How would the media react if a Republican titan made this kind of not—so—veiled threat?
