Writing a Kennedy book that fails either to dwell obsessively on the subject of sex or to prop its protagonist up in a haze of mythology would seem to be an almost Herculean task. Yet, Mr. Clymer has done just that. He has followed in great detail the legislative career of Ted Kennedy and shown that, although the man never did become President and had his share of personal failings, his constant labor on behalf of the causes for which he believes have had a gigantic, if sometimes unappreciated, impact on the country. Ted Kennedy is not the visionary that his brother Robert was, and he lacks the controlled detachment that President Kennedy had. However, Ted Kennedy's strengths, according to this book, are his persistence and his guiding principle that almost anything can be accomplished in Washington as long as you allow somebody else to receive the credit for it. He was never a President, but he has always been a politician...in the best sense of the word.
