The appointed guardian of the Kennedy name, Ted Kennedy, was the ninth child born into the family of Rose and Joseph Kennedy, matriarch and patriarch of America's Royal Family.

Joseph Kennedy was out of step with both his party and government, and because of a speech he gave about democracy being finished in England, and maybe in America, his public career was finished. His asperactions were then turned to the ambitions of his sons, which was to effect Ted for the next 25 years.

The turmoil started for Ted, and at the age of nine his sister Rose was committed to an institution, then his brother, Joe jr., was killed in an air explosion over England.

Ted then attended private schools from 1940 - 1945, but never fitted in, so he reinvented himself which helped him later in his political life. Then in 1948 his sister, Katherine, was killed when her private jet crashed into a mountain side.

He developed a flair for politics while campaigning for John as he pushed for the presidency. The resolute was that John won by a mere 120,000 votes, and because of this John asked Robert to be Attorney General as he could not trust anyone else.

In Massachusetts Ted's detractors tried to derail him at a debate by trying to defame his name, but Ted stood his stance and became the unsung hero by not losing his cool, and won by 69%. In 1963 he took the oath as a senator, and made a speech about segregation that went way back beyond his brothers' time.

At the time of John's assassination, Ted was in Washington presiding over the Senate when he was told about his brother's death. The idea of Camelot weighted heavy on Ted as he picked up the banner which trapped him and shaped his life, and from then on he would benefit and suffer.
