As Ted Kennedy found out, power is a fickle bed fellow.

In our interview with Joan Kennedy, when asked about the Warren Commission, she explained:  “He (Ted) didn’t think it did anyone any good to believe otherwise. It wouldn’t be good for The Country. It wouldn’t be good for The Kennedys.”

Author Jefferson Morley suggests, “Teddy had a choice. Investigate his brother’s death and kiss off public service for the rest of his life. Or embrace public service and avoid looking into the terrible and painful realities of Dallas. He made his choice and he had to figure out how to live with it.”
