    Yeah, and unexpected things happen. I remember an Oliphant cartoon from early 1969. Ted Kennedy was slouching against a wall — watching and waiting, suitcase in hand — while Nixon did his double-victory-sign shtick. Nixon was looking nervously over his shoulder, as if Kennedy would be a shoo-in for 1972.
    .
    Yeah, well … There was an the old “National Lampoon “ ad parody that said, “If Ted Kennedy had been driving a Volkswagen, he’d be president right now.” Hint: VWs were said to float if driven into the water.
    .
    Sorry. It disgusted me then and it still disgusts me. But it was a shocking and valuable lesson in the vagaries and vicissitudes of fate.

    Ted Cruz was born in Canada, and Marco Rubio’s parents were not citizens until he was 5, so bring it on right wingers.

    “……You’re clueless, Jeb said he will not run.”

    “…..She has already said she will not run”
    .
    And of course you believe her.

    “…..Had the Democrats not been the first to make an issue about where Obama was born, The Republicans never would have brought it up.”
    .
    Of course they wouldn’t have, they are above such petty politics.

    It would be a shame there are so many other dem o rats that can do a better job than her. I mean the only part she can do is lie(bill said he had nothing to do with that women and I believe him) and she can not even do that well

    Thanks for the effort in finding it. It still makes me cringe. And really, until that incident, nearly everybody thought he was certain to be president. Remember Tom Wolfe’s magazine piece that assumed Ted would be rerunning in 1980, “The Third Great Awakening”? (if I remember correctly)
