    One small problem - Teddy Junior does not live in Massachusetts.  He lives in Connecticut and happens to own another property in Massachusetts.  He would be tagged as a classic carpet-bagger.  I doubt if he can win on name alone.

    •  Hell, Elizabeth Warren (0+ / 0-)

      was tagged by some as a carpetbagger and she's lived in MA since 1995.

      I agree that Ted Jr. shouldn't run.

      Robert Kennedy's connection to New York was having lived in Bronxville for a while as a kid.  No one seriously believed he was a New Yorker; Hillary's connection to the state was even more tenuous.  Yes, that was New York, but I do think the famous name in both cases acted as a counter to "carpetbagger" accusations.  Also, Ted Jr.'s connections to Massachusetts are more substantial than his uncle's were to New York.  He grew up there, he was educated there, and his father served as the state's Senator for 47 years.  Ted Jr. is more of a Bay Stater than Robert was a New Yorker (and I say that with the utmost respect for RFK).
