According to a top Massachusetts Democrat, Joseph P. Kennedy III, a grandson of RFK, is considering running for Congress. One of former Representative Joseph P. Kennedy II's twin sons, JPK the third may run if Representative William Delahunt decides against seeking reelection. And if he does run it will give the Kennedy clan a chance to continue its 60-year run with a member of the family in elected office, a streak that was threatened when Rhode Island Representative Patrick Kennedy announced that he will not seek reelection. Not much seems to be known about JPK the third's specific positions, but his photo reveals one disconcerting thing about him: He's a ginger, and therefore has no soul.
