I just picked up "Last Lion-The Fall and Rise of Ted Kennedy" at the bookstore. I have never been a diehard fan of him but he is the dean of Massachusetts politics and the last king of the great Kennedy dynasty-a title no one ever really thought he would have but wound up taking after his two brothers were slain. He is probably one of the last great liberal senators that this nation will ever see as well. Nevertheless this should be a great read as it is written by Boston Globe writers-the foremost authorities on covering Massachusetts politics at the national level. Sometimes they have it easy because often times Massachusetts politics is national politics! I promise a review once I finish reading it.
