The next Kennedy generation to challenge Alex Sink?



Shriver There's been lots of Buzz lately about Anthony Kennedy Shriver of Miami - son of Sargent and Eunice, brother of Maria - running for Florida governor. We haven't heard back from him, but it sounds like he is very seriously looking at the race. Perennially rumored to be on the verge of running for statewide office, Shriver leads Best Buddies International, a charity that helps intellectually disabled people.

What's not clear is whether there's much reason to see him as a serious threat to frontrunner Alex Sink. If Caroline Kennedy couldn't get anywhere in her foray into New York politics, why would a more obscure Kennedy fare much better in a race with a well-funded and overwhelming frontrunner?
