Boston Globe: Ethel Kennedy Reportedly Preps for Democratic Convention
The former McLean resident has been making a lot of news lately.
For being a fairly private person, Ethel Kennedy has been making a lot of news lately.
What with a new documentary Ethel soon to be broadcast on HBO and her reported fondess of a certain country music star who appears to be dating her grandson, Kennedy's name has been popping up in the press left and right.
(Editor's Note: McLean Patch acknowledges that Kennedy no longer claims our community as home, but, as such a longtime McLean fixture, we believe she will always remain a relevant local figure.)
The most recent headline from The Boston Globe contends that Kennedy will attend the Democratic convention in Charlotte, NC next week with several other members of the Kennedy clan.
"Although the Democratic National Convention next month will mark the first such gathering since 1944 in which no one from the Kennedy family is serving in Congress or the White House, about two-dozen members of the clan are expected to travel to Charlotte, N.C., according to a person who is familiar with their plans.
Caroline Kennedy and Ethel Kennedy are scheduled to attend, as well as the late Senator Edward Kennedy’s sons, Ted Jr. and Patrick, the former Rhode Island congressman."
