They've Got the Wrong Kennedy

If what seems to be going on today in New Hampshire is really happening, then it’s time to drop the Obama = JFK comparisons. The Kennedy he reminds me of most – or, rather, that his support reminds me of – is Robert Kennedy in 1968.


Think about it. The vigorous, relatively youthful insurgent generates a real groundswell among independents and the young, knocking aside a tired incumbent who supported an unpopular war.

Forty years later, it’s still an exciting story, even if you don’t necessarily approve of all the players.
